Welcome to the AFCEA Alamo Chapter Web Site
AFCEA (the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association) directly supports the community nationally through the AFCEA Educational Foundation and locally through the chapters with scholarships and awards to students with degree programs in the sciences.
The Alamo Chapter has awarded educational scholarships in excess of $150,000. The prime method of generating the money to support our scholarship program is through the annual symposium and exhibition, known as the Alamo ACE.
The Alamo chapter sponsors monthly luncheons and other networking events designed to promote the free and ethical exchange of information between the uniformed military services, government civilians and private industry -- with a particular focus on the cyber, medical IT, training and ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) career fields.
Through our Young AFCEANs group (ages 40 and under), the chapter also promotes mentoring and career growth opportunities for members in a variety of ways.
2014 Alamo ACE
October 27 - 30, 2014
La Cantera Resort
San Antonio, Texas
The theme for the 2014 Alamo ACE is "Mission Assurance: Strategies for an Integrated Future" and will discuss the technological impacts that are affecting the future of DoD operations.
The 2013 Alamo ACE hosted nearly 1,200 professionals during the event, featured a sold-out exhibit hall, and the sponsorship program was greatly successful.The annual Alamo ACE supports government/industry partnership, provides training to our military and federal civilians and encourages the communication of new ideas and innovation in the San Antonio (and surrounding region) defense/government arena. The 2014 Alamo ACE will open with a golf tournament that will benefit the Wilford Hall Fisher Houses. This will be followed by two days of expert panels and keynote speakers. Our 2014 theme, Mission Assurance: Strategies for an Integrated Future, continues the progressive themes of Alamo ACE and provides a future focus as the nation faces changes and challenges in Cyber, IT and ISR.
