Rocky Mountain AFCEA at a Glance

The AFCEA Rocky Mountain Chapter is a leader in the Colorado Springs community, unifying the area's military, government, industry and academic partners to advance the continuing education of today's young leaders in science, technology, engineering, math and computer science fields (STEM). 

The Rocky Mountain Chapter is proud to sponsor the premier annual Rocky Mountain Cyberspace Symposium (RMCS) at the world class Broadmoor resort. This event attracts senior government, military, industry executives and academics to discuss the ever challenging cyberspace domain and ways to share information and best practices that can improve current and future cyberspace operations.

Our organization provides the Front Range community with over $200,000 annually in STEM teacher grants at the local elementary, middle and high school level and college STEM scholarships at Pikes Peak Community College and UCCS.

Chris YAC Award 2020.png

Young AFCEAN of the Year

Congratulations to Chris Colón, who received AFCEA International's Young AFCEAN of the Year award!  
Chris has worked extraordinarily hard for the past two years for the Rocky Mountain Chapter (RMC).  He became a role model for all our young AFCEANs by stepping up to serve on the RMC Board of Directors.  He directed all RMC young AFCEAN activities including website content, event marketing, and coordination with military and government community outreach teams. After taking the reins on the RMC Board of Directors as Vice President, Young AFCEANs (YAC), he quickly helped establish numerous YAC supported events including a Star Wars Cyber Night at Sky Sox stadium, Industry/Military golf tournament, Cyberspace Symposium YAC event and numerous YAC happy hours throughout the year. The golf tournament raised $7,750 for STEM scholarships and the symposium raised over $200K. His contributions led to the chapter receiving its second ever Young AFCEA Model Chapter of the Year award.

Rocky Mountain Cyberspace Symposium 2020 is a Wrap!

The chapter thanks all participants for another stellar year for RMCS. We thank everyone for participating in this year's Rocky Mountain Cyberspace Symposium.  We had over 2,000 attendees, 129 exhibitors, 25 sponsors, and 35 speakers.  This event couldn't happen without over 100 volunteers, to include 17 volunteer committee members.  Funds raised during this Symposium help Rocky Mountain AFCEA give over $250K to the local community in STEM scholarships and teachers grants, as well as donations to other STEM-related activities. See everyone again next year for the 2021 show: February 1-4, 2021.
