Welcome to AFIO Arizona

If you enjoyed your association with the Intelligence community or want to find out more about it, you should join AFIO Arizona!

AFIO, the Association of Former Intelligence Officers, is a National Organization with chapters throughout the US. We are made up of current and former intelligence professionals and joined by supporters of the US intelligence community.

We are a friendly group who enjoy a common focus on Intelligence and staying current.

AFIO’s goal is to build a public constituency for a sound, healthy and capable U.S. intelligence system. We provide education and current assessments of the important role of intelligence in ensuring the security of the Unites States, it’s infrastructure, businesses and individuals from a wide range of current threats.

If you are interested in US intelligence and security activities, we invite you to attend one of our meetings and, hopefully, become a member of the National organization first and our local chapter second.
