FAIRFAX, VA—AFCEA International is pleased to announce the 2013 Young AFCEAN of the Year, Distinguished Young AFCEAN (DYA) and Emerging Leader Award winners.

 

These awards were presented on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 at the West 2013 Conference in San Diego, CA. For more information visit www.afcea.org/awards.  

 

 

The DYA Award recognizes and rewards exceptional performance in two areas – a record of going "above and beyond" at the local AFCEA Chapter level, and superior technical achievement in the professional arena. 

 

The AFCEA Regional Vice Presidents have the honor to personally select an individual from their Region to receive the Regional DYA Award. These honorees represent an elite group of individuals that have gone above and beyond for their Chapters. These honorees are also eligible to win the Young AFCEAN of the Year Award.
