Young AFCEANS Bring Awareness to Chapter

The chapter’s Young AFCEANs (YACs) had the honor of having Lt. Col. Richard J. Hughes, USAF, speak at their fourth annual YAC Power Breakfast, which was held in October. These breakfasts serve as a venue for young professionals within the local Dayton community who support government or industry partners to receive mentorship from the region’s key defense leaders. Col. Hughes, who is the commander of Air Force ROTC Detachment 643 and professor of aerospace studies at Wright State University, spoke about “Leadership Opportunities Within the 21st Century,” which attracted 16 key defense leaders as well as young professionals. Some of the key focus areas of conversation were: the need for science, technology, engineering and mathematics knowledge and culturally astute leaders who are able to compete at a global scale; future defense priorities and strategies; global threats and the ways to defeat them; and the need for smart leaders who can adapt to the ever-changing world. This event would not have been possible without sponsorship support from the chapter’s industry partner, CDO Technologies Inc. The next YAC Power Breakfast will be held in February of 2014, and the chapter hopes to attract even more young professionals and industry partners.
