AFCEA NOVA 2020-2021

SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

With over 6,000 individual and corporate members, our chapter boasts the largest membership in the AFCEA International community. Our chapter has the hometown advantage of having the Pentagon in our back yard, the Nation's Capital right next door, and the backbone of the Internet at our center. This means that our monthly luncheons, IT Days, breakfasts and special events connect you with government speakers that provide current policy and future program technology content with relevant business connections to meet your bottom-line goals.

Proceeds from these activities support the AFCEA NOVA chapter and our Education Fund. AFCEA NOVA is actively involved with supporting local middle schools, high schools, and universities, giving out thousands of dollars in scholarships & educational grants annually.

Sponsorships are your marketing advantage at any AFCEA NOVA event for any size budget. All sponsorships include recognition in broadcast emails to almost 17,500 Government and Industry contacts as well as a social media reach of over 8,000 followers. Sponsorships all include invitations (cumulative) to our exclusive Executive Roundtable, an intimate AFCEA NOVA non-attribution forum with DoD leadership.

 

Executive Roundtable: Recognizing the support of its corporate sponsors, AFCEA NOVA holds an annual Executive Roundtable (ERT). The ERT provides a valuable intimate setting for our corporate sponsors. It is an opportunity for our sponsors to experience high quality networking with other company executives and Government VIPs. High level government speakers are also invited to share their views, in an informal non-attribution setting and talk about the challenges and realities of the DoD budget, and how industry can adapt to this market.

LUNCHEON SPONSORSHIP

AFCEA NOVA Luncheons provide you an opportunity to increase your visibility, build your business development pipeline, and learn about what priorities and challenges your customer cares about so you can make sure you are aligned with their technology requirements and future procurements. Our Luncheons provide you with the opportunity to network and build relationships and connect directly with key government decision makers. Eight Luncheon programs are planned each program year. Each event attracts nearly 170 attendees.

2020-2021 luncheons run from September 2020 - June 2021. The September, October, and November Luncheons will be virtual with hopes of the remaining 2020-2021 Luncheons (January – June) taking place in-person at the Westin Tyson’s Corner.
