AFCEA's Orlando-Central Florida Chapter

The Orlando-Central Florida Chapter of AFCEA was established in September 1999 by a handful of individuals with interests in Information Technology and service to the Central Florida community. Only a few were current AFCEA members, and several had no previous "Armed Forces" background or connection. But they all recognized the need for a forum for defense-related Information Technology professionals in the greater Orlando area, and a local chapter of AFCEA seemed to be just the ticket.

Since that time our chapter has grown steadily as we look for ways to serve the C4I community, local schools, and our members, and we have been honored by AFCEA International with a series of awards to the Chapter and our members.

Our leadership team is hard at work on this year’s agenda. Initiatives for this year include continued growth of our education and Young AFCEAN programs. As always, we have some excellent opportunities to serve your local community through AFCEA – please contact Roger Smith or any of our leadership team if you are interested in joining a good group, doing good works.

Chapter efforts to support education in the Sciences and Engineering have completed for this school year. Our scholarship program, science fair awards, and support of the Florida Science Olympiad are all aimed at influencing young students to pursue careers in C4ISR-related fields. Please contact Mike Agor of JHT if you’d like to help out with any of these rewarding activities!

Our quarterly newsletter has some details. Thanks for your support of AFCEA!
