AFA Launches New Membership Option - the eMember

ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Air Force Association is proud to announce its newest member initiative. In an effort to expand AFA's outreach to influence the public through digital content, AFA now introduces the eMember.

As of today, AFA has made available the eMember option that will be identical to the traditional membership in every way except eMembers will not receive the print copy of Air Force Magazine. Instead, they will receive access to an online version of the Magazine. They will receive all other current member benefits and are eligible to hold office, vote, and in every way enjoy the benefits of an AFA membership. For now, eMemberships will be available as one-year memberships only and will cost $30.

This will coincide with the upcoming launch of a new Air Force Magazine website that reflects today's digital age and will include a members-only area – a system that will prevent internet users from accessing certain online content without a paid membership. Additionally, the electronic version of the Magazine will also be migrating from its current PDF format to a new format which will present the entire magazine in a digital format identical to the print magazine. All members, both current members and new eMembers, will have full access to all of the content.

With these steps, AFA is entering a new and exciting period! Greater emphasis is being placed on digital communications to further engage those who share in AFA's mission. Each month, for the next four months, AFA will make an announcement as it advances toward the full implementation of the eMember category. Encourage those interested to JOIN today!
