Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Update

Updated May 26, 2020

The health and safety of our attendees, speakers and sponsors is our top priority. Due to continuing concerns regarding COVID-19, Young AFCEA Bethesda has transitioned our Winter IT Luncheon into a virtual Summer IT Luncheon on June 30, 2020.

We feel that holding the event virtually is the best and safest option for our members, their families and the greater community. All current attendee registrations will be transferred to the re-scheduled event and partial refunds will be issued. We look forward to providing you with the same valuable content and interactive networking opportunities in a virtual format!
