Alumni Updates

 Dear Friends/Alumni,

During the past 9 years there have been many changes with the Alumni Association and the Executive Management Center along with the National Alumni Consultants who advise students on the offices they hold. Some students haven't understood the difference between the NACs, and our Alumni Association. In 2017 we started sending any requests from students to us to the NACs, and asked not to contact students ourselves.

In the past we would receive articles and updates to send to Alumni, but the EMC and those that help the students have voiced they want to do that also to help with confusion. Some of you probably have had some communication with them. When filling out forms on whether or not you want communication from students, we have stuck to what has been requested. As a project the management center have been going through old forms of membership, and finding people to contact that way.

Since they have been managing the alumni student interactions, JAA started focusing on ways to help Alumni and have networking and social events at places where Alumni are local to. In the past we even had a test pilot on local Alumni chapters. The tests went well, but other goals came up that were more important at the time. When we were just starting to get that going again is when COVID started.

Now that things are hopefully returning to a little more normal, we were hoping to start with helping our alumni, and local networking and working with the Air Force Association. Many of our members are already AFA members. Some alumni in AFA thought that was the alumni association. It used to be for the Arnold Air Society.

We will be sending out more information in a few days with goals and the future of JAA.

Hope all is well with all of you. If you know of any alumni that need help, please let us know by emailing jaa.org@gmail.com

Alumni Mentoring and Updated Alumni Information

Dear Alumni,

The current administration for Arnold Air Society and Silver Wings have decided they want to disperse information regarding their organizations and updates.  With this decision, there has been confusion about JAA.  The Alumni association is still around, and focuses are changing.

Alumni have been expressing interest in alumni helping other Alumni.  This can be mentorship, information regarding areas being moved to, careers, and many other supportive topics.  Local socials were also discussed, but with current problems, this has obviously been put on the backburner.

When you have a chance, please fill out the following form so we can have your updated information.  https://forms.gle/SFB9TFcKpmfEGhHcA  Keep in mind no information is shared with third parties.

We have more wonderful news coming out shortly.

Hope All of You Are Well

We hope that all of you are doing well.  In some past emails we had discussed how some alumni have wanted mentorship from other alumni, and to have more involvement.  With everything that is going on, some of us had an idea.  If you, or an alumni you know are in need of help through all of this, let us know.  

You can comment here, or send an email to jaa.site@gmail.com

Transferring to New Site Layout

Dear Alumni,
Some of you may have noticed our website is down.  We have been wanting to transition in several different directions, and with the cost of how we have been doing the website, and the amount of paid members for Alumni, and the cost of Socials, we have been needing a cheaper options.  The past 4 years Summer Folsom has been covering the costs out of pocket, although she has been unemployed due to surgeries and complications from surgeries. 

We mainly have been having the web address forward to our Facebook account.

Shortly we will be putting out several more important emails.
Have a wonderful day.

Joint Alumni Association of Arnold Air Society, Angel Flight, and Silver Wings
