Thursday, February 14 at 4:00 p.m.

Come and join Women in AFCEA for its annual Women's Appreciation Event on February 14 during the AFCEA/USNI WEST conference! 

Sponsored in part by Walker & Associates/Ciena Corporation and Bloomberg Government, over 400 people are expected to attend. The event will start with drinks and appetizers, giving everyone a chance to network with senior leaders in the AFCEA community.

The event is highlighted by a fireside chat with three senior women in the Sea Services, moderated by the Chair of the Board of AFCEA International. This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity as these senior military leaders share their insights on challenges and successes experienced throughout their distinguished careers.
