2019 AFA Texas Annual Award

Happy 2019! Time to get the awards going in these three areas: National Awards, Texas AFA Awards, and Military Awards. We will form a committee at the state to rank order the folks from each category and submit to State President Mike Winslow for his final approval and to forward national award nominees to Region President Kelly Jones who will rank order with the Oklahoma nominees for forwarding the National. In the event you want clarification, there are some links below, but you will probably need to log in to the AFA website as a Field Leader to access. Forms are attached for your convenience.
