Once the NRO auditorium is filled, Symposium presentations will be televised on large screens in adjacent rooms with overflow seating. Auditorium seating will be filled on a first-come first-served basis each day.
AFCEA Intelligence is offering a special discounted registration rate for active federal government and military personnel. This special rate does not apply to contractors who work for or with the government or military.
On the registration form there is a discounted rate for AFCEA members. To receive the member rate for conference registration you must be an active AFCEA individual member or designated associate member of an AFCEA corporate member company. If you sign up for the member rate and do not meet the criteria, you will be charged the correct rate.
To join AFCEA or verify current membership status:
Refund requests must be emailed to Gretchen Eisenhower and received no later than September 1, 2011. No substitutions are permitted after September 12, 2011.
If you register and later determine that you are unable to attend because you do not have the proper security clearance, you must submit a cancellation request in writing to AFCEA Intelligence, 4400 Fair Lakes Court, Fairfax, VA, 22033, no later than September 1, 2011. Your request must be accompanied by a written statement from your security officer confirming that you do not have a Top Secret clearance with SI/TK access.
Each day the Symposium will begin at 8:00 a.m.
All attendees must be cleared for Top Secret, and currently indoctrinated for SI and TK access at the time you register.**
Attendees WITH IC blue or green badges do not need to pass clearances.***
Attendees WITHOUT IC blue or green badges must arrange for their Special Security Officer (SSO) or Contractor Special Security Officer (CSS) to send an SSO- or CSSS- originated clearance certification message to the NRO.
The clearance message must include the following:

**The NRO does not grant interim TK access--applicants for registration must be cleared TS//SI/TK. The NRO will not provide any "read-in/read-out" security services.
***Symposium attendees whether IC badged or not must process through the visitor center to obtain a conference badge.
