Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association - Northern Virginia Chapter

AFCEA NOVA is the largest Chapter in the AFCEA International family, with approximately 7,000 members and an equal number of associates and friends in industry, government & academia. They are blessed with the Hometown Advantage of having the Pentagon in their back yard, the Nation's Capital right next door and the Birthplace of the Internet at their Center -- which means that AFCEA NOVA luncheons, conferences and special events always feature top speakers and cutting edge topics, not to mention the best networking in town.

AFCEA International is a worldwide nonprofit professional association founded as the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association; but it encompasses more than just the military. AFCEA represents the top government, industry and military professionals in the fields of communications, electronics, intelligence, software, information systems, imaging and multi-media. AFCEA's purpose is to support global security by providing an ethical environment that encourages a close cooperative relationship among the military, civilian government agencies and private industry.

AFCEA NOVA holds monthly luncheons September through June featuring leading Government speakers on how information technology enables National Security. They host four major annual Service IT Day Conferences featuring speakers on information technology from the Army, Navy, USMC & Air Force. For their Corporate Table Holders, they hold an annual Executive Round Table. They also have lots of fun with their very special Valentine's Sweetheart Ball, a Golf Tournament and many Young AFCEAN Events.

Proceeds from these and other activities support the AFCEA NOVA Education Fund. AFCEA NOVA is actively involved with local high schools, colleges and universities and with support from their members and friends in FY2010, they gave out more than $290,000 in scholarships & educational grants.
