From the Global War on Terrorism to rebalancing in the Asia-Pacific region to the exponentially growing challenges of cyber defense and deterrence worldwide, the responsibilities of defense organizations are monumental and not always aligned. Solutions require a clear understanding of needs and issues, and ultimately, on developing innovative and affordable products, services and strategies. Success is only possible through collaboration and information sharing among industry, defense departments and governments across the globe.

AFCEA's defense programs are uniquely structured to meet these needs through networking opportunities that include continuing education, thought leadership, conferences, scholarships, product and service expositions, community service, committee involvement, chapter engagement and leadership opportunities.
