AFCEA International, established in 1946, is a non-profit membership association serving the military, government, industry, and academia as an ethical forum for advancing professional knowledge and relationships in the fields of communications, IT, intelligence, and global security. AFCEA supports local chapters, sponsors events, publishes the award-winning SIGNAL Magazine, promotes education, and provides member benefits – all with the purpose of equipping its members to meet government’s challenges and to further their careers. AFCEA and its chapters provide a common ground for learning that is unquestioned in its integrity and unequaled in the reach of its relationships.
