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 City 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.
Under the auspices of the County’s Chambers of Commerce, TRAFC is the local community organization supporting 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 17 member board of directors.
The organization meets monthly on the third Monday at Noon. At these monthly meetings, the group receives TAFB Command updates from the 60th Air Mobility Wing, the 349th Air Mobility Wing, and the 621st Contingency Response Group.
Throughout the year, TRAFC members host events to honor the men and women of Travis AFB. In addition to involvement in Travis AFB events, TRAFC hosts a Military Recognition Night, Commander’s Night, and NCO Night. Additionally, TRAFC annually hosts a Contractor’s Breakfast for businesses on “How to do Business with Travis Air Force Base.”
The organization’s members have visited congressional leaders in Washington DC to seek support for military construction projects, military benefits, 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 $150.
