Travis Regional Armed Forces Committee
Are you curious about the mission at Travis Air Force Base and hearing stories from those who serve our country? If you have answered YES to that question, then you must consider joining the Travis Regional Armed Forces Committee (TRAFC). Your Chamber membership with the Vacaville Chamber of Commerce or any Solano County Chamber enables you to join TRAFC. Further, if you have retired from military service or are currently serving as an Honorary Commander at TAFB, you may join TRAFC directly.
TRAFC was originally formed from the Solano County Armed Services Committee and the Military Affairs Committee of the Fairfield-Suisun and Vacaville Chambers of Commerce. It was designed to combine separate Travis Air Force Base support groups into a more effective regional voice.
Under the auspices of the County’s Chambers of Commerce, TRAFC is the local community organization, which supports the men, women, and mission of Travis Air Force Base. Its membership is comprised of over 150 local business and civic leaders, including elected officials from throughout Solano County, the state, and federal governments. Its day-to day administration is shared by the Fairfield-Suisun and Vacaville Chambers of Commerce. The committee is governed by an all-volunteer 18 member board of directors. The organization meets monthly on the third Monday at Noon. At these monthly meetings, the group receives updates on Travis activities from the base’s Commanders from the 60th Air Mobility Wing, the 349th Air Mobility Wing, and the 621st Contingency Response Group.
Throughout the year, TRAFC members hosts events to honor the men and women of Travis AFB. Besides involvement in Travis AFB events, TRAFC hosts a Military Recognition Night, Commander’s Night, NCO Night, and the ever important Contractor’s Breakfast for businesses on “How to do Business with Travis Air Force Base.”
In the past, the organization’s members visited congressional leaders in Washington DC to seek support for military construction projects, military benefit’s, equipment improvement, and additional missions. The organization also leads efforts to achieve necessary support from local governments, agencies, and businesses on matters crucial to the base and its operations.
In short, TRAFC is the community’s eyes, ears, and voice for the people of Travis AFB. Membership is available with annual dues of just $135.
