The AFCEA Emerging Professionals in the Intelligence Community (EPIC) committee is organizing an academic UMD outreach event on January 26, 2022 from 6 to 7:30pm EDT. This event will be a virtual panel of EPIC members answering questions submitted at registration by attending participants. Following a 30-45 minute period of answering these questions, panelists and other EPIC attendees will manage breakout rooms focused on specific schools and interests wherein participants from the academic community can engage directly with the panelists.

Our objective in this event is to provide an opportunity for students, post-docs, and other young professionals to achieve a better understanding of the opportunities and roles available to them within the Intelligence Community. This event is aimed at current or recent academic graduates across all fields of study and both undergraduate and graduate. As this is pertaining specifically to the intelligence community, it is only targeted towards US citizens. This is not a recruitment event or a job fair. The EPIC committee panelists will briefly introduce themselves, highlighting their path into the IC, current role within the IC, and thoughts on opportunities for those in the academic fields. All panelists, the moderator, and any other EPIC attendees will be participating as private citizens, they are not representing any government entity or business.
