The AFCEA Value Proposition AFCEA connects innovative people, great ideas and vital solutions to advance the global security mission. We provide an ethical forum for military, government, academic and industry communities to collaborate so that technology and strategy align with the needs of those who serve. Our Core We are a member-based, non-profit association for professionals, providing thought leadership, engagement and networking opportunities. Through our corporate and individual member structure, we focus on cyber, command, control, communications, computers and intelligence to address national and international security challenges. AFCEA offers a variety of networking activities, conferences, symposia, expositions, the award-winning SIGNAL Magazine, mentoring and scholarships. Educational opportunities include professional development courses, approved continuing education sessions at events and documentation for continuing education certifications.  Educational opportunities are also available through AFCEA’s Preferred Providers. We Are Unique AFCEA is unique among other defense, intelligence and service associations. In addition to our U.S. headquarters, we have a dedicated office in Europe to support our international partnerships and chapters, and our large and dynamic global chapter network, with more than 120 chapters, fortifies our continued growth. Our membership includes nationally and internationally recognized experts in their respective fields. In addition, our ethical forum is mandated within our bylaws, which prohibit lobbying. Our educational component, supported by our own Educational Foundation, offers more than $2 million in scholarships annually. Our focus is on STEM education, but we also support a variety of other initiatives that help those who serve. The association is also distinctive in its innovative approach to supporting early career individuals. The Young AFCEAN Advisory Council helps younger members gain leadership experience and make connections in our chapters, on our committees and on our board. Within the Intelligence arena, the Emerging Professionals in Intelligence Committee provides a foundation for younger individuals to learn, serve and make a difference in that community. Our Heritage Through our established worldwide network of individuals, chapters and member organizations, AFCEA has led the ethical exchange of information for nearly 70 years, with roots that trace back to the U.S. Civil War. In the 1850s, Lt. Albert J. Meyers, an assistant surgeon in the U.S. Calvary, devised the Wig Wag systems using a signal flag to send messages. In 1946, the organization he formed for signal flag communicators was absorbed into what became AFCEA through the efforts of Maj. Gen. Harold C. Ingles, Brig. Gen. David Sarnoff and a number of industry leaders. AFCEA became International in 1979 with the establishment of chapters in Europe, Asia and Canada. Our members continue to be the thought leaders behind the new and creative solutions to some of the most challenging problems facing global security. The association was formed as the backbone in support of its members, and it has never strayed from this purpose. Our Promise AFCEA will deliver unique opportunities, an inspired global community and an exceptional experience, whether you are deployed, serving at home or serving those who serve.
