Events and ProgramsSupporting the schools in San Diego County
The San Diego Chapter of the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) continues its partnership programs with schools in San Diego County. A key AFCEA mission is to encourage students to enter science and engineering careers – defense and non-defense related – since we believe that a strong and creative technical workforce is essential to our future.
Over the years, our local chapter has been garnering a significant amount of money (21%) from the total AFCEA International budget allocated for chapter initiatives. Kudos to our Education committee for supporting the local community in furthering the interest in Science and Engineering.
