As a nonprofit organization, AFCOMAP's charter is to promote professional and leadership development of Air Force officers and assist cadets as they transition into active duty. Initially focused on minority officer development and recruitment, AFCOMAP has transitioned into a secretary of the Air Force-sanctioned organization, focused on the mentorship of all officers. Its membership is composed of active duty, Reserve, Guard, retired commissioned officers, AFROTC cadets and honorary members who are committed to the professional growth of the aerospace leaders of the future.

The Air Force officially recognized AFCOMAP on June 30, 1989. We are a nonprofit, nonpartisan, and nonsectarian organization. Our purpose is to promote professional and leadership development for all Air Force Officers, to assist officer candidates (cadets) with their transition into the Air Force, to support retention of minority officers in the Air Force, and to promote the image of the Air Force in our local communities by seeking to stimulate the interest of youth in an Air Force career in the service of our nation. The vision of AFCOMAP is embodied in the statement: "Every officer mentored; every officer a mentor."
