AFCEA Intelligence Committee. It focuses on developing leaders, networking and giving back to the intelligence community.
The committee, composed of intelligence community professionals under the age of 40 from both the public and private
sectors, enhances AFCEA’s outreach and education to the
community. During its monthly meetings, the committee hosts
guest speakers from around the intelligence community who
educate the next generation of intelligence leaders.
