Parents' Club Presidents

Parents in bleachers at US Air Force Academy

When you become a Parents’ Club President, you quickly realize that communication is critical. A Parents’ Club President is the conduit between the Academy Parent Liaison and the parents. Hopefully this page will help your Parents’ Club Board Members sustain continuity as they transfer in/out of their various positions. The Academy Parent Liaison could not do her job without your help—so THANK YOU!

Parents’ Club President Conference

Each year the Academy hosts a Parents’ Club Presidents Conference right before Parents’ Weekend. A Reception is normally held at the Superintendent’s home the Wednesday before Parents’ Weekend and the conference is Wednesday – Thursday. On Friday of Parents’ Weekend, there is an Information Fair at Arnold Hall at which some Parents’ Clubs have a table to sell approved products. As soon as the Parent Liaison’s office gets the information required for selling approval, they will send out the required information to the Parents’ Clubs to submit for reservation.

This year’s Parents Weekend conference dates: Reception: Aug 31, 2022, Conference: Aug. 31 – Sep. 1, 2022, Info Fair: Sep. 2, 2022
