Before joining AFR in 2015 Allison enjoyed a successful career with Educational Connections as a marketing and content coordinator in the DC area – directing outreach programs and coordinating large projects and events. Alli is especially proficient in social media, blogging content, and manages our monthly newsletters. Her relentless attention to detail make her a natural Event Planner and her good humor has made her a hit with our reunion chairmen.
Carolyn brings a wealth of event planning experience – both nationally and internationally. She handles a wide variety of clients for AFR, from WWII veterans to active duty DoD conferences, and manages both with a professional and gracious demeanor, along with a keen eye to detail. She is a great asset to AFR and any group who works with her is in terrific hands.
Mandy started in 2005, having gained most of her industry experience with a local motorcoach company. She is our main data entry person, one of our computer experts, and after nine remarkable years simply irreplaceable. Mandy’s position is critical to the smooth operation of our office, as she’s responsible for maintaining all group databases, designing registration websites and reports, printing all materials for registration packets, and scheduling the seasonal staff. She has the patience of Job and is cheerful under any circumstance.
Donna makes us look good when we’re on-site. She’s in charge of assembling the registration packets, which is no small task: printing programs, attendee rosters, tickets, nametags and then assembling everything while rarely if ever making a mistake. Donna is also one of our cheerful local staff for on-site registrations and tour escorting. With her husband being a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, Donna has lived and breathed the military life for many years.
Emily is one of our dependable travelers and on-site managers. She began her tenure with AFR in 2007 after many years involved in event planning with the Virginia Chorale, the only professional choral group in the State. A real go-getter with such a delightful personality, Emily is an often-requested onsite representative for both reunions and Yellow Ribbon events.
