Airmen can make a difference in the AAAC

Aviano Air Base, Italy -- Airmen who want to make a difference in the community have an opportunity in the Aviano Airmen Advisory Council. 

The council recently held elections and its new goals are to improve more things on base for Airmen and more volunteer involvement. 

"The co-chairman [Airman 1st Class Bryan Crowley] and I hope to make this council even stronger," said newly-elected AAAC Chairman Airman 1st Class Juan Ramirez. "We want to make the AAAC something everyone wants to be involved with by making it fun while, at the same time, making a positive impact in the lives of Airmen as well as Aviano." 

As a medium between leadership and the lower enlisted ranks, the council's mission is to provide positive role models for the military and civilian community through self-motivation and professionalism. They also help with Airmen's issues. 

"We encourage all Airmen to come to us with issues regarding the dorms, workplace or any other concerns so we can hit the issues head-on," Airman Ramirez said.
The council also participates in fund-raisers to raise money for various programs.
"This year we gave away a scholarship worth $150," said Senior Airman Wendy Day, AAAC member. "We can see the changes we've made and it's a good program to get involved in. It does make a difference on base." 

The AAAC holds monthly meetings at 3 p.m. the last Thursday of each month in the 31st Mission Support Group conference room, Bldg. 1403.
