LEADERSHIP FORUM


The AFCEA Hawaii Educational Foundation’s Leadership Forum brings together a small group of emerging leaders to learn from senior leadership in an intimate setting. The Forum is held during the TechNet Asia Pacific Conference Tuesday through Thursday.

The focus is on practical applications of leadership for mid-level managers in the commercial and defense communities.

Attendees actively participate in a program that combines lecture and classroom in 12 hours of instruction with key leader presentations. These key leaders come from senior positions in the military, government, industry and academia. The course is complemented throughout by rich interaction, and both formal and informal networking opportunities. Graduates of the Leadership Forum are eligible for continuing education units from George Mason University and are provided access to the Leadership Forum Alumni website.
