2018 AFNA National Conference Sponsorship Letter

The Association of Federal Narcotics Agents (AFNA) consists of current and former Special Agents of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and its predecessor agencies. Among our associate members are DEA Task Force Officers, Intelligence Analysts, Diversion Investigators, and support personnel.

The mission of AFNA is to support current DEA special agents and their families in any way possible.  Our AFNA charities consist of the DEA Survivors’ Benefit Fund (for the survivors of agents killed in the line of duty); AFNA Foundation (providing scholarships for the children of DEA personnel); and the DEA Educational Foundation (supporting the DEA museum and drug educational activities).  AFNA provides critical funding and other support to each of these core charities.

AFNA will hold its Annual National Conference from October 25th to 29th, 2017 at the TradeWinds Island Grand in St Petersburg Beach, FL. We ask our friends in the private sector for their support of this event. AFNA recognizes the following levels of sponsorship:  $5,000 (Diamond); $2,500 (Platinum); $1,000 (Gold); $500 (Silver); and $250 (Bronze).

Sponsors will be recognized in our printed programs and at all meetings and forums held throughout the conference. In addition, sponsors at the Diamond and Platinum levels will be recognized on the AFNA web site www.affna.org with their company name, logo (if applicable), web site link, and a short blurb about their company. Sponsors at the Gold level will be recognized on the AFNA web site with their company name, web site link, and logo, while those at the Silver level will have their company name and web site link posted.

Your contribution is tax deductible as an advertising expense. The AFNA web site is viewed not only by retired DEA employees but is accessed by the public as well. We hope there is room in your advertising budget to help us this year. Your assistance and support are truly appreciated as we continue our work to support the men and women of the Drug Enforcement Administration and their worldwide fight against narcotics trafficking.

If you choose to sponsor, please complete the Sponsorship Form and submit it (and if applicable your logo) to the Executive Director at executive.director@affna.org or mail the form & check (and if applicable your logo) to AFNA P.O. Box 2801 Ashburn, VA 20146.

If you have any questions or would like additional information, please contact me at rkcdea@aol.com, or at 239-470-4824.  Thank you for your support.
