One Notable Night for AFCEA International

Experience the power and prestige of AFCEA history and tradition

while honoring the achievements of an exceptional leader.


The AFCEA tradition began when a group of successful innovators and communicators led by David Sarnoff, president of RCA, experienced first-hand how open dialogue and strong relationships between government and industry facilitated military preparedness. Since its charter in 1946, the association has continued to grow and expand into an increasingly strong, relevant and vibrant organization serving government, industry and academia worldwide. 

Each year, AFCEA celebrates its mission as well as its history by identifying an individual who has made lasting and significant contributions to global peace and security with its most prestigious award, named after David Sarnoff. Each recipient in his or her unique way has demonstrated a sustained and personal commitment to information sharing and collaboration across traditional and nontraditional boundaries.

Introducing AFCEA's David Sarnoff Award Winner

This year, the winner of the AFCEA David Sarnoff award is Adm. Michael S. Rogers, USN (Ret), who has served in many roles that align with AFCEA's mission, including as the director of the U.S. Cyber Command and the National Security Agency until May 4, 2018. 

Reserve your place today at the Sarnoff Dinner to honor and thank Adm. Rogers for his life-long commitment to building government and military relationships throughout his more than 37 years of military service.
