|The Dayton-Wright AFCEA Chapter is based out of the Dayton/Wright Patterson Air Force Base region. WPAFB Major Units include: HQ AFMC, AFLCMC, NASIC, AFRL, AFIT, 88 ABW & Group, 445TH Wing, and the National Museum of the USAF, as well as the Springfield Air National Guard.
The Chapter Executive Committee and Board of Directors are made up of volunteers from Government, Industry and Academia who put in countless hours to support Chapter initiatives. Monthly membership luncheons feature Government, Industry and Academic leaders who speak on the current events or programs that make up our community. The luncheons are generally held the third Thursday of each month at the Hilton Garden Inn in Beavercreek, Ohio except during months of another scheduled event.
In addition to our luncheons, quarterly events such as Chapter Networking events, Young AFCEAN Power Breakfasts and other activities, and semi-annual Membership events provide a forum for our members and those interested in AFCEA to come together to assist each other through joint dialogue. Other annual events include a Spring Casino Night and a Logistics/IT Summit held in conjunction with The Daniel J. Curtis Memorial Golf Tournament. Net proceeds are used to support scholarship and educational programs.
The DWAFCEA Chapter supports scholarships, grants and awards for students pursuing technical degrees; scholastic assistance to military enlisted personnel; Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) schools; awards to Air Force Institute of technology graduate students for research excellence. Excess net operational funds are transferred at the end of each year to the Dayton-Wright Chapter Education Assistance Endowment Fund managed by the Dayton Foundation.
