Young AFCEAN Recognized as Emerging Leader

Chapter member Ryan Cox with Oracle won the National Capital Region Distinguished Young AFCEAN (DYA) Award in 2011 for exemplary leadership as a chapter Young AFCEAN (YAC). At WEST 2014, Cox received the Emerging Leadership Award from AFCEA International, which recognizes former DYAs who have demonstrated continuous leadership. As a member of the chapter, Cox served as YAC president, and as a result of his performance, he was elected to the chapter board in 2012. Cox served successfully as vice president of information, where he initiated innovative member communications, most notably the NOVA Communicator eNewsletter, and led the adoption of social media for advertising and member coupling. Cox chaired the chapterís committees for Small Business, Sponsorship and Schedules, and was selected for the 2013 Corjay Award, the highest chapter honor not often given to younger members. In 2013, Cox was elected as vice president of special activities, managing the chapter's largest events with a budget of more than $880,000. With regional YAC presidents, he co-hosted a Holiday Social, Nationals games, and a Wounded Warrior Softball Game. He was also a YAC liaison for AFCEA International's Small Business Committee; a Veteran's Scholarship judge; a 2012 AFCEA International Meritorious Service Award Winner; and in September 2013 was AFCEA International's AFCEAN of the Month.
