MEMORANDUM FOR: Chapter Presidents, AUSA Directors and Staff

FROM: GEN Gordon Sullivan, USA Ret.

SUBJECT: Political Activities

As we approach the 2016 presidential and congressional elections, it is appropriate for me to remind you that the Association shall not, through its officials or units, participate or intervene in any political campaign on behalf of, or in opposition to, any candidate for public office. In addition, AUSA officials and staff are not authorized in their official capacity to make public or media statements in support of, or in opposition to, a political campaign or candidate for public office. When making such statements in their capacity as private citizens, such persons must indicate clearly that they are not representing the Association or speaking for, or on behalf of, the Association. However, nothing in this policy is intended to limit the rights of officials and staff to express personal opinions or to engage in political activity in their individual capacities and as private citizens.

As always, thank you for what you do for Soldiers and for the members of this Association.
