2017 APAA Awards Dinner

We hope you'll join us in November for the year's premier Army Public Affairs event! The Annual Army Public Affairs Association Recognition Program and Dinner will be held at the Mark Center Hilton in Alexandria, Virginia, Nov. 15 with a pre-event cash bar reception at 6 p.m. followed by dinner starting at 7 p.m.

This year’s event will feature Chief of Army Public Affairs Brig. Gen. Omar J. Jones IV as the guest speaker and – as in previous years – recognition of the new Army Public Affairs Hall of Fame inductees. We are especially proud that the first award presentations of the prestigious Ancient Order of St. Gabriel will be featured at this year's dinner! 

We are looking forward to using this opportunity to share with you our vision for the next year, which includes plans for leadership and best practices panels and networking events at installations outside the Washington, D.C. area, and taking steps to establish chapters at targeted locations.

If you have not done so already, please reserve your tickets here by Nov. 6!

The dinner includes a three-course meal with a choice of one of three entrees for $70 for members and $75 for non-members. Take advantage of the membership and dinner ticket combination offer for $100 and save. Tickets may be purchased using PayPal (login or create a new account at no charge). You may also request to be invoiced and pay by credit card upon receipt of the invoice.

The attire for the event is business/cocktail.


Kick off the forum by connecting with your Army Public Affairs colleagues. The Army Public Affairs Leader Forum Networking Reception will be held at Clyde’s at Mark Center in Alexandria, Virginia from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 13.

Please join us, hear our vision and share your feedback! I'm looking forward to connecting with many old friends and new colleagues!
