Chapter Focus
AFCEA Bethesda is a non-profit organization that encourages dialogue and partnership between the Federal Government and industry to solve today's most critical IT challenges. Through our widely attended events, we strive to foster better inter-agency communication, share best practices, identify mission-critical issues and management approaches, and increase engagement with industry IT solution and service providers. AFCEA Bethesda is the premier civilian chapter of AFCEA International. On average, we connect with more than 250 senior government executives who participate as speakers for our widely-attended annual events, to include monthly breakfasts, full day conferences, symposia and executive dinners. Our Chapter proceeds benefit STEM education in area schools. In addition, our annual gala has generated over $7 million in proceeds for charities benefiting the health, welfare and education of children and others in the community. Additionally, our active Young AFCEA organization provides a network for young professionals to connect with rising leaders and seek mentoring relationships in the initial stages of their careers. The Young AFCEANs manage up to six independent annual programs facilitating dialogue between IT executives and senior federal leadership. These events have included large networking receptions, luncheons, a charity golf tournament and a 300-attendee dinner featuring prominent federal executive guests.
