FAIRFAX, VA — The Honorable Paul A. Schneider, Principal at the Chertoff Group, former Deputy Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and former Under Secretary for Management at DHS, has been selected to chair the AFCEA Homeland Security Committee.

Mr. Schneider’s selection, AFCEA International Vice President for Homeland Security,

Dr. Vince Patton, said, “We are pleased that Mr. Schneider has accepted the appointment as our new chairman of the AFCEA Homeland Security Committee.

Mr. Schneider’s previous high level government position within DHS and his well-known professional reputation and experience are the perfect match for our homeland security focus. Without question, he will continue to provide the exceptional leadership that our outgoing chairman, Mr. Jim Flyzik, established.”

 

As chairman of the committee, Mr. Schneider will be one of the principal speakers for the AFCEA Homeland Security Professional Development Course, which will be held December 5-7, 2012 at AFCEA Headquarters, Fairfax, VA.

The Committee provides forums, including symposia, meetings, and papers, for the exchange of ideas within this community.
