The Silicon Valley Chapter serves the local, state, federal agencies and military communities. The chapter focuses on Communication Systems as they pertain to unified communication and collaboration, security, and information assurance. The chapter enriches its membership through regularly scheduled events at locations throughout the Chapter region. Fund raising activities bolster our ongoing awards and scholarship program.

We hosted a very successful and well received luncheon and program on 5 November, the topic was "Social Media, Privacy and Operational Security.  Everyone in attendance learned about the different types of social media available on the Internet, but more importantly how to ensure your accounts are secure and privacy settings match the user's comfort level of putting their information out to the public.  We closed with a lively panel discussion with professionals from different "eras", industry and the military.  

Stay tuned for the announcement of our next topic to be presented on 4 February 2015 at 11:30a.m.; we look forward to seeing you there (location TBD).

Sincerely, The AFCEA Board
