We are a member-based, non-profit organization for professionals that provides highly sought after thought leadership, engagement and networking opportunities. AFCEA focuses on cyber, command, control, information technology, communications, and electronics for the defense, homeland security and intelligence communities.
We take pride in upholding the highest ethical standards in our support of those who respond, protect, secure and serve, as well as their industry and academia partners.
The Dayton-Wright Chapter of AFCEA holds monthly luncheons, an annual Casino Night, Golf Tournament, Wright IT Summit (WITS), technology forums, networking events and many Emerging Leader events.
Proceeds from our Chapter events and activities support many local scholarship and educational programs designed to foster a pipeline and interest for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
