David Hart has been a constant force in the chapter for the last nine years. He has been associated with countless committee efforts
and nearly every aspect of the
Dayton-Wright Chapter’s organization and management.
Hart is currently Segue’s senior
director of business development. He primarily works in the
Defense Department space with a
focus on Air Force work. He is an
expert in team building, collecting market intelligence, identifying pursuits, managing pipeline and partner relationships, and supporting proposal teams to capture federal contracts.
Under his outstanding leadership as president,
the chapter had a very successful 2015-2016 year on
all fronts. Hart is a lifetime AFCEA member whose
attention to detail ensured the chapter’s more than
$158,000 of income exceeded expenses, leaving a
strong and viable budget for the coming year. Hart’s
guidance is instrumental in the success and attendance of the chapter’s monthly luncheons, the annual
Valentine’s Ball and the annual golf outing, all well
attended by both local and base civilian and military
leaders. He is a strong champion of small business
within the defense sector, encourages the growth of
the Young AFCEAN program and is playing a key
role in reviving a fall information technology event
in the community.
An accomplished skydiver with 5,000 jumps, he
uses this experience as a keynote speaker on teamwork and leadership. He is the author of Jump! Leaps
in Organizational Performance & Teamwork. Hart
believes that people accomplish great things when
they collaborate as a team, working towards a shared
vision with common goals.
In recognition of his leadership skills and dedication to the chapter and the association, AFCEA
proudly names David Hart AFCEAN of the month.

AFCEA Sign 3-Year
The NATO Communications and Information (NCI) Agency and AFCEA International signed a three-year Strategic Cooperation Arrangement that strengthens efforts to improve support for command, control,
communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and
reconnaissance (C4ISR) needs and missions for NATO’s
The NCI Agency and AFCEA started their cooperation in
2013 to promote military C4ISR technologies and policies for
military, governments, academia and industry. Leaders signed
the renewal agreement following the acclaimed NITEC 2016
cyber conference, hosted this year in Tallinn, Estonia. Previous
conferences have been held in Bucharest and Madrid. The next
joint event, NITEC 2017, will take place in Ottawa in April.
NATO officials announced in Tallinn roughly € 3 billion
($3.4 billion) in funding for future cyber-based initiatives
to match—and then surpass—the increasingly sophisticated
attacks against its 28-member alliance—set to be 29 members after NATO formally invited Montenegro earlier this
year. Increased Russian aggression, instability in Europe’s
south, the Syrian refugee crisis and evolving cyberthreats
all have contributed toward new strategic realities, but also
jockey for the same pot of limited financial resources—
mobilizing the alliance to strengthen collaborations with
industry for vital solutions.
