Conference Background

The Lexington-Concord Chapter of the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) is holding its New Horizons 2015 Conference March 2-4 at the Boston Newton Marriott in Newton, Massachusetts. Some changes have been made from previous years that reflect today’s dynamic environment, adding a broader regional look at near-term opportunities while retaining the important interchange between the government and industry partners. This year’s agenda includes the Hanscom AFB Program Executive Officers (PEOs) and their Division Chiefs, U.S. Army RD&E Command, National Guard and several non-DoD organizations, including MIT Lincoln Laboratory. In addition, The MITRE Corporation will be presenting on “transformational change”. There will also be several panels which will provide a forum to exchange viewpoints and open up discussions with audience members. The second day will end around noon, followed by AFLCMC Government Small Business panel.
