The New Orleans – Silicon Bayou Chapter mission is to service the Gulf Coast region by offering a platform upon which Industry, Military and Government can connect and form partnerships that create a win-win environment for all parties.
These connection opportunities are available at AFCEA luncheons, educational seminars, conferences, fund raising events and social mixers.
Another mission of AFCEA Silicon Bayou is to support the development of the next generation of IT Professionals and Cyber Warriors.
The Silicon Bayou Chapter activities to support this mission include:
- Scholarships to area high school seniors looking to obtain a degree in engineering, computer science, IT, mathematics, physical sciences, robotics and electronics.
- A STEM partnership with the New Orleans Marine and Maritime Academy
- Scholarships and Certification exam fee grants to Military personnel, spouses and children.
- Developing a networking environment and hosting a career/job fair for Military and Industry to match skills to needs.
- Fostering a relationship with the Posse Foundation to support a STEM scholarship fund for dis-advantaged area prospective students.
These are some of the many projects and opportunities that the Silicon Bayou Chapter supports in the Gulf region. If you want to become a member and get involved please contact us.
