Chapter Focus
The Chapter is focused around the National Security Agency (NSA), Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), and United States Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM), in addition to serving members from a variety of other agencies and commercial interest. Annual activities include a series of seven monthly luncheons; an NSA AFCEA Mission and Acquisition Symposium (NAMAS); an NSA Industry Acquisition Partner Exchange (NAIPE); an Annual Corporate Sponsorship Luncheon; an Awards Night Banquet; a Valentine's Day Gala; a Bull & Oyster Roast; Spring and Fall Golf Outing; a Presidents Cup Golf League, an AFCEA 5K Fun Run and Family Walk; a YAC Mentorship Night, and an AFCEA Night at Camden Yards baseball game, plus a variety of Women in Intelligence Group (WIIG), Small Business, and Young AFCEAn (YAC) events. A new annual event added in 2015 is the Wounded Warrior Cyber Combat Academy (W2CCA) Mixer to raise funds for a scholarship for a wounded warrior. The Chapter has increased its overall commitment to education, including $10,000 4-year college merit based scholarships to 17 high school seniors (including 2 Cyber Study, 2 Freedom awards targeting students with adversities, and 1 Women in Technology); a WIIG DREAM scholarship for $2,500; a STEM Teacher scholarship; awarded $62,000 in STEM Kickstarter grants to teachers and schools; $2,000 each to the Ft. Meade Officers' and Enlisted Spouses Club; and $50,000 to the AFCEA International Education Foundation. This year we established a $50,000 endowment with Community College of Baltimore County, approved two additional endowments with Baltimore City Community College (BCCC) and Prince Georges Community College (PGCC). We have existing $50,000 endowments with Anne Arundel Community College, University of Maryland Baltimore County, Howard Community College, Carroll Community College, and University of Maryland (College Park). Scientific Education initiated two new initiatives in 2015: 1) Internship Program designed to bring scholarship awardees back into our community and 2) STEM Outreach to target STEM education specific activities. Provided 22 volunteers to eight (8) science fairs and competitions in 2015.. The Young AFCEAns also host a monthly social to drive membership growth and a monthly Technology over Bagels (morning meeting). Our Women in Intelligence Group (WIIG) continued to grow in size and strength. They have conducted various mentorship events and fund raising activities and continue to be self-supporting and profitable.
