Please mark your calendar for the 6th Annual AFCEA DC Spring Leadership Awards Dinner - May 30, 2013 at the Army Navy Country Club in Arlington, VA. This elegant event is a salute to our Warfighters for their service and dedication, and recognizes the contributions and sacrifices that they have made in defending our nation.

AFCEA DC will recognize a member from each branch of the military that has made a significant contribution to the Warfighter through the use of information technology. This recognition will be given to two members (one enlisted and one officer stationed anywhere in the world) from each of the armed services – US Army, US Marine Corps, US Navy, US Air Force, US Coast Guard – and two service members in joint staff positions, who were nominated for their contributions in calendar year 2012.  Special consideration will be given for decisive bravery.

The event will include a reception at the newly renovated Army Navy Country Club, a keynote presentation, dinner, an awards recognition ceremony, and an opportunity to interact with senior government and industry leadership in support of our Armed Forces.
