TAMPA, FL – Tampa Partner Andrew (Andy) J. Mayts, Jr. has been appointed to the Air Mobility Commander's (AMC) Civic Leader program. The program is designed to educate key civilian influencers from communities surrounding Air Force installations and prepare them to serve as advocates for airmen and their families. Andy joins a group of 26 other civic leaders from around the country serving a three-year tour in the program. During their tour, civic leaders will visit numerous AMC installations to gain a full understanding of the unique service AMC provides to the warfighter. Past visits have included stops at some of the most active bases in the Air Force. These visits give AMC civic leaders a chance to not only see the Air Force perspective of global operations, but also to learn how the Total Force integrates to accomplish the nation’s military mission.
“AMC is excited to have ardent community and business leaders like Andy as a member of the commander’s Civic Leader program, which benefits from their leadership, experiences and connections in communities near mobility installations like MacDill Air Force Base,” said Colonel Damien Pickart, AMC Public Affairs Director. “We look forward to Andy’s contributions to the program and his continued support to our mission and lives of AMC’s Total Force Airmen and families.”
