Welcome to AVAA

Alabama Veterans Affairs Association is the oldest nonprofit organization of its kind, founded in 1974, dedicated to serving our educational professionals that serve our military students and their families. 

Alabama Veterans Affairs Association (AVAA) is excited to announce that our Annual Training Conference will be on site for 2021! We will be offering a hybrid/virtual conference option for those that are not yet able to travel and participate in person. The conference will be located at the Orange Beach Event Center (at the Wharf) in Orange Beach, Alabama from Monday, October 18 through Wednesday, October 20, 2021. We have published a tentative agenda for the conference and look forward to seeing you there! As you prepare your travel plans, please be aware that we will taking every precaution to keep the meeting facility sanitized and to socially distance as much as possible during our time together. We have a large meeting space and will be able to spread out to take part in our presentations and still be able to learn together in person. Every effort is being made to individually package food items and snacks that will be provided during our time together. The reservation link for the hotel next to the event center is included below. Once that space is filled, you can take advantage of several other hotel offerings nearby the Wharf area and the beach front is only a few miles away for those that prefer to stay ocean side.


We are excited to be back together in person this year! More information will be provided as we draw closer to the conference dates.

We have chosen to work with Operation ReConnect this year in support of the amazing work that they are doing to support returning soldiers and their families. Check out their website at the link below to learn more about them. You will get a chance to meet some of their leaders at our conference and proceeds from our long-sleeve t-shirt sales this year will be donate to Operation ReConnect to help them serve our military families as they are returning to civilian life and reconnecting with their families. We are honored to be able to provide you with the opportunity to order a shirt to support this outstanding organization. 






Excited to serve and train together again in person,
