The theme for the 2014 Alamo ACE was "Mission Assurance: Strategies for an Integrated Future."
The event, which took place Oct. 27-30 at La Cantera Hill Country Resort, brought together well over 1,500 military and industry leaders in the cyber, ISR, medical IT and education/training career fields for two days of keynote presentations, panel discussions and ethical information-sharing, a trade show/exhibit hall, free and discounted IT training for military personnel, and fund-raising activities benefiting wounded warriors. The ACE concluded with an “Acquisition Day,” featuring mission needs and contracting requirements involving the 24th and 25th Air Forces, 38th Cyber Engineering Group, and the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC).
“Events like the ACE are key to developing and strengthening symbiotic relationships between San Antonio’s military missions, IT industry partners and STEM academics,” Alamo AFCEA President Bill Morrow said. “All areas of our national defense increasingly depend on cutting-edge thinking in cyber and IT, and the phenomenal growth of the ACE since its inception in 2010 is a testament to the support AFCEA receives from both our military and industry partners in these fields.”
