AFCEA Central Maryland Chapter (AFCEA-CMD) is a non-profit membership association dedicated to providing an ethical, interactive forum for sharing knowledge and building relationships across government, military, industry and academia.
Our Chapter focuses primarily on enabling the intelligence missions of today and tomorrow through education and investment in talented people.  We accomplish our goal by promoting the continuing education of current IT professionals, and supporting the education of future leaders in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).  Each year, proceeds from our corporate sponsors and Chapter events enable us to award over $200,000 to qualified students and teachers through direct scholarship, endowment or grant.
The fastest growing and third largest chapter within AFCEA International, AFCEA-CMD includes over 1800 professionals working in and around the Fort George G. Meade area.


Chapter News

In May, the chapter's Women In Intelligence Group (WIIG) book club met to discuss Dr. Lois Frankel's "Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office." The discussion centered on specific steps to achieving further success at work through astute networking, communication and mentorship. The WIIG book club has met since 2007 to address the challenges and issues women leaders face in the government, military and industry communities. The group is inspired through sharing career experiences and meets regularly to discuss books on business, career development and technology.
The chapter held its annual Spring AM/PM Golf Tournament in May. Rain and wind caused the morning tournament to be cancelled. Luckily, the skies cleared in time for the afternoon tournament. Thanks to sponsorships and generous donations from golfers, the afternoon tournament raised $13,400 for the chapter's science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) scholarship fund. In a chapter first, three teams finished in a three-way tie for first place. Congratulations to the finishers from Lockheed Martin, SAIC and Leidos for braving the uncertain weather and helping the chapter have a successful outing.
