SIGNAL 75 Years of AFCEA

The 75th anniversary, which AFCEA celebrates this year, is traditionally known as the diamond anniversary. As the hardest natural substance on Earth, diamonds represent strength, resolve and durability. It is a fitting metaphor for an organization that has supported the U.S. national security and defense community since 1946.
There are exciting times ahead for AFCEA International and our local chapters as we endeavor to connect people, ideas and solutions that enable our military, government, industry and academia partners to align technology and strategy so they can succeed in their important missions.
AFCEA’s 75th anniversary shows that it is an enduring organization that has even greater relevance today than when it was founded.
