What is AFCEA?
AFCEA is a professional association that connects people, ideas and solutions globally.
We do that by developing networking and educational opportunities and providing them worldwide in an ethical manner. This enables military, government, industry and academia to align technology to meet the needs of those who serve in critical areas, which include defense, security, cyber and intelligence.
As a member-based, nonprofit 501(c)6 organization, we have a long history of encouraging innovation and advancing technology to ensure preparedness and security. We officially formed in 1946, but our organizational roots trace back to the Civil War.
The association includes individual members and corporate members, and AFCEA's international regional chapter network helps members build networks, grow relationships and expand opportunities. AFCEA members and constituents include professionals in military, government, industry and academia.
AFCEA is an international organization that serves its members by providing a forum for the ethical exchange of information. AFCEA is dedicated to increasing knowledge through the exploration of issues relevant to its members in information technology, communications, and electronics for the defense, homeland security and intelligence communities.
