“Nobody can teach me who I am. You can describe parts of me, but who I am – and what I need – is something I have to find out myself.”
Chinua Achebe


“The Dallas BAAC Leadership Training Meeting was exceptional! I’ve attended several BAAC conferences for over 8 years and I learn something new every time. It was very helpful to learn about investing in your career, saving money in your Thrift Savings Plan (TSP), and proactively engaging in your retirement plan. In addition, the networking was amazing and I’ve made great friendships over the years! I certainly encourage everyone to attend and share the wealth of knowledge we gain with your peers!”

The Dallas BAAC Joint Advisory Leadership Training meeting was very informative. Our National Joint Executive Advisory Board provided superb, powerful and knowledgeable Guest Speakers for our leadership Training Seminar back in August 2018. The speakers' presentation was impeccable! that we invited these gentlemen to come to New York and speak at our Retirement/TSP Seminar Training back in April 2019; which was Phenomenal.
