Vice President, Education, AFCEA International

Executive Director, AFCEA Educational Foundation

Email

 

Fred H. Rainbow joined the AFCEA International staff as the Vice President for Education and the Executive Director of the AFCEA Educational Foundation in May 2005.  Mr. Rainbow has a long association with AFCEA International and the Educational Foundation.

As AFCEA International’ s V.P. for Education, Mr. Rainbow plays active roles in the non-profit professional association’s events, conferences, and symposia, and in supporting the Association’s 129 chapters worldwide.  Education is an AFCEA core value.  Combined, AFCEA International, AFCEA Chapters, and the AFCEA Educational Foundation award approximately $2M in scholarships, awards, and grants to deserving students and teachers in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math)-related fields.

The Educational Foundation’s three-year old STEM Teacher Scholarships for America’s Future already has 54 AFCEA Scholarships Winners in classrooms teaching STEM subjects.

The Educational Foundation also plays major roles in AFCEA International’s initiatives to enrich all its events, conferences, and symposia.  The Foundation’s Professional Development Center (PDC) has been critical in acquiring pre-approved continuing education units (or equivalents) for the content presented in these engagements.  In addition, the PDC continues to add new technical education and training content to all AFCEA engagements from new highly regarded preferred partners.

Mr. Rainbow came to AFCEA from the U.S. Naval Institute where he had worked for 30 years.  Mr. Rainbow served as the editor in chief of the monthly Proceedings magazine for 20 years and helped launch the popular bimonthly Naval History magazine.  As director of periodicals and seminars, Mr. Rainbow was responsible for all the Naval Institute’s periodicals, seminars, and oral history program.  In 1990, Mr. Rainbow worked to bring AFCEA and the U.S. Naval Institute together to launch and co-sponsor the annual WEST Conference and Exposition.  In 2003, he served as the interim chief executive officer of the Naval Institute, supervising and executing daily operations as well as the search for a new chief executive officer.

On active duty in the U.S. Navy from 1971 to 1975, Mr. Rainbow served as an intelligence officer.  Mr. Rainbow also served six years in the U.S. Naval Reserve.

A cum laude graduate of Slippery Rock University, Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania, with a degree in history and social studies, Mr. Rainbow received the Coast Guard Distinguished Public Service Award in 2002, the Admiral Arthur W. Radford Award for Excellence in Naval Aviation History and Literature in 2005, and the Navy’s Distinguished Public Service Award in 2006.
