Young AFCEA Rewards Volunteers

Everyone loves to be recognized for their accomplishments and hard work. Involvement with AFCEA rewards you both personally and professionally, but here at headquarters we award well-deserving members of the organization through our awards program. We have two Young AFCEAN awards that are given out each year at our WEST Conference in San Diego, California- Distinguished Young AFCEAN and Emerging Leadership. These awards recognize the hard work members have put into events, raising money for STEM scholarships, leadership and exceptional service at their chapter, and mentoring others.

Distinguished Young AFCEAN Winners 2015

"I have gained many rewarding experiences and opportunities from my involvement with the Young AFCEANs. When I moved from the military to the civilian workforce, the friends and mentors I made from my involvement with AFCEA allowed for a smooth transition.  I am also extremely grateful to have been honored with awards from AFCEA International for my contributions within the Young AFCEANs." - Matthew Carroll, Lexington-Concord Chapter
