Description

The Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) is a non-profit international association that is dedicated to supporting global security by providing an ethical environment that encourages a close cooperative relationship among civil government agencies, the military and industry.  

AFCEA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving the surrounding communities of Hanscom Air Force Base and is comprised of small and large member firms, professionals and active duty and retired military working together to enhance community service. A key facet of the AFCEA mission is to The AFCEA Educational Foundation which serves to support excellence in education, provide educational incentives, and assist people pursuing education and careers in STEM-related disciplines.
