Welcome to the Association of Former Special Agents of the Internal Revenue Service

Katherine Kaderabek is the Salutatorian of her graduating class at Paul VI High School. During her time in high school, she was President of the National History Club, Captain of the Girls Varsity Swim Team, and a member of the National Honor Society. She will be studying architecture and English in college at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. Along with her other academic accomplishments, the one achievement she is most proud of is that she is a published novelist. Her debut novel, Unravel by Kat Kade, is now available on sites such as Amazon and Barnes and Noble. She hopes to break out into the world of young adult fiction and follow in the footsteps of the authors who inspired her to write. She also hopes to become a successful architect in the city of Washington, D.C., her favorite city in the world. My name is Hannah Vigil and I’m from San Antonio, Texas. I graduated from the International School of the Americas (ISA), a magnet high school on the Lee campus. During high school, I was involved with several organizations such as MUNSA (Model United Nations SA), the Interact Club - the volunteering/service club - and the dance team for two years. During my years at ISA, I also traveled with my class to Arkansas, New Mexico, Alabama, and Washington. During each year respectively, we went through a simulation of poverty at Heifer International, actively learned about and engaged in different cultures, learned more about the Civil Rights Movement including talking to still-living witnesses, and interviewed Congressman Will Hurd on a topic we picked when creating our own public policy recommendation.

After graduating, I applied and was accepted at Angelo State University in San Angelo, Texas. I am currently a junior there and am majoring in Accounting. My first two years at Angelo State I was privileged to be a part of the dance team there. When not dancing, I still involve myself in my school whether through community service opportunities, going to school sporting events or any other school-sponsored event. In Fall 2018 I will be a Freshman at California State University, Fullerton where I plan to major in Business Administration. I was selected to be in the University and Business Honors program where I hope to represent the program well and discover learning opportunities . I graduated from Dougherty Valley High School in San Ramon, CA where I enjoyed playing varsity baseball and basketball. I am proud to have obtained the highest rank in the Boy Scouts of America Organization, known as Eagle Scout.

Law Enforcement has always intrigued me and although I am unsure of my future career path, I want to explore all possible options and find something I am passionate about.

Thank You again,

Thomas A. Lopez (Miami, Fl) has attended every AFSA Convention (except for 9/11 because the planes were not flying)


It's time for us to start getting ready for the upcoming AFSA-IRS Convention and Business Meeting that will be held in Washington D.C. from September 18-21, 2019.  More information about the convention will be included in the Spring newsletter, but the first step you will want to take is to make your reservations for your hotel room at the Marriott Washington Wardman Park Hotel, 2660 Woodley Road, NW, Washington, D.C. 20008.  That can now be done and there are a couple of ways to do it.
One way is to click on the following link:
This link will take you to a dedicated website at the Marriott Wardman Park that is available to all attendees who wish to book their reservations on-line. 
Another option is to call 877-212-5752.  Tell them that there is a group rate under the name "AFSA Meeting".  There will be a couple of choices.  One is a Standard guest room at a rate of $129.00 per night and another is an Executive Suite at a rate of $147.00 per night.  Attendees will be able to make reservations at that rate for up to three days prior to the convention and three days afterwards, should you want to spend some extra time in D.C.  Our Block is limited, so reservations will be on a first come- first served basis.
