SILICON VALLEY CHAPTER CHAPTER - Nov 13, 2013

Chapter Leadership Planning Meeting Held

Bob Moorhead, chapter president, hosted 10 enthusiastic members and loyal friends of the chapter in November to lead the efforts in bringing the chapter back to a more active status. This was a working lunch at a local restaurant in Silicon Valley known as Pezzelas Villa Napoli. The objective of this meeting was to bring together a select group of industry and government personnel to determine a way forward that will serve the current and new members of the chapter. Through this initiative, it was determined that the chapter will provide a quarterly agenda of meeting topics on its website that will provide all members with a future calendar of events. There was a discussion on vertical market areas that would be of interest to members and be a draw for new membership in the chapter. The planning team determined the following topics would be important to current chapter members and encourage new memberships: cyber initiatives, robotic solutions, emerging technology and social media. The planning team is now engaged in soliciting future guest speakers and structuring the publicity for these meetings. The chapter is now once again on the road to be an association that will be a tremendous value to its current and future members. The people in attendance stepped up to take on responsibilities for various chapter functions, and it is encouraging to find a renewed interest in the Silicon Valley Chapter AFCEA organization!
