Welcome to AFCA
Alexandria, Virginia
Alexandria Federation of Civic Associations
A coalition of Civic Associations working together for a better Alexandria, Virginia
AFCA is City-wide in scope and non-partisan in nature.  It seeks to provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas among local neighborhood organizations and associations.  The Federation promotes full discussion of issues likely to affect residents of the City.  Topics of particular interest to AFCA members include City procedures and policies; residential and commercial development proposals and plans; environmental concerns; transportation; education; open space; infrastructure; public safety; health services and housing.

AFCA works to encourage a free, spirited and continuing dialogue among community leaders, elected officials, and appointed representatives.  A founding principle of the Federation is that civil discourse involving strong neighborhood and homeowners’ associations and others throughout the City, will foster a better Alexandria for all.


The Alexandria Federation of Civic Associations (AFCA) cordially invites your Alexandria, Virginia, Civic, Citizen, Community, Condominium, Homeowner or Tenant association to join our citywide organization.
