The Silicon Valley Board of Directors met recently and developed a Mission and Vision Statement, they are as follows:

Mission:  "The Silicon Valley AFCEA Chapter serves its members by providing a networking venue and a positive exchange of information by leveraging the bay area's entrepreneurial innovators, IT industry and government."

Vision:  "To be the bay area's premier information technology, communications, and electronics association for professionals and entrepreneurs in the IT industry, academia and government."

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 informative luncheon and program on 4 February and Dr. Horacio Chavez guided us through the 75 year history of NASA ames.  We learned about the founding father of NASA AMES and Dr. Chavez told us about some of the past projects accomplished Moffett Field and some of the upcoming projects.    

We're proud to present Chinese Threats to the Internet - It's Not Just Hacking on 13 May 2015 at 11:30 a.m.; we look forward to seeing you there (Location:  Moffett Field Museum - Severyns Ave, Mountain View CA 94043).

Sincerely, The AFCEA Board
