Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James will host a spouse and family forum from 9 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. Oct. 19 in the Smart Center Auditorium on Joint Base Andrews, Maryland.

The event will broadcast live on AF.mil.

The forum is an avenue for Air Force families to relay questions, concerns and suggestions directly to senior leaders and their spouses.

The agenda includes three panels that will cover spouse employment, child care access, referral care processes, potential issues on treatments for autism spectrum disorder, assignments for dual military couples and relocation services.

James announced the event during the Air Force Association’s Air, Space and Cyber Conference in September, and said she is taking a “several-fold approach” in the way the Air Force is currently supporting Airmen and their families.
