Mentor new AFDO members, especially younger members, and make them welcome at AFDO and in the affiliates. This would involve “active” mentoring, not simply leading them around during AFDO and introducing them to other members.
Support the various Committees through active participation as “role models.”
Develop a special “AFDO Archive” by reviewing existing historical documents and personal experiences of alumni members. There is much we can each recall from our “AFDO” experiences.
Work to integrate FDA alumni group into the AFDO Alumni Committee.
Identify mechanisms to establish a scholarship fund to help Alumni members attend the annual conference.
Work with AFDO Office regarding inviting recent retirees to continue actively participating in AFDO.
