AUSA is a private, non-profit educational organization that supports America’s Army – regular Army, National Guard, Reserve, retirees, government civilians, Wounded Warriors, veterans, concerned citizens and family members. AUSA provides numerous professional development opportunities to transitioning service personnel at a variety of events both local and national.
Since 1950, the Association of the United States Army has worked to support all aspects of national security while advancing the interests of America’s Army and the men and women who serve. As the premier voice for America’s soldiers, the organization is a dedicated team “committed to building the best professional and representative association for the world’s best Army,” says its website.
AUSA – Voice for the Army, Support for the Soldier
AUSA has 119 chapters located worldwide. Made up entirely of volunteers, the organization provides recreational and educational opportunities to soldiers and their families. AUSA and its chapters have contributed over $1.5 million to awards, scholarships and support of soldier and family programs in the last year. Their mission is to support U.S. soldiers and the civilians and families who work alongside of them in the local community.
AUSA represents every American soldier by:
Being the voice for all components of America’s Army
Fostering public support of the Army’s role in national security
Providing professional education and information programs
The Association of the United States Army Young Professionals (AUSA YP) is a national initiative to increase interest in AUSA among young professionals. It strives to achieve this by providing value through professional development activities, leadership positions and membership benefits, says its website.
“The Association of the United States Army is the association for young professionals and emerging leaders who are soldiers, veterans, family members, government civilians or supporters of the U.S. Army, and who are in search of professional development and networking opportunities,” continues the AUSA YP website.
