If you missed this year’s Alamo Chapter Event (ACE), you missed another top-notch event that broke records and barriers over three days filled with speakers, engagements and exhibits.
The event hosted 2,500 attendees and welcomed back the Mayor of San Antonio, Ron Nirenberg, as well as the new 502nd Air Base Wing and Joint Base San Antonio Commander, Brigadier General Laura Lenderman. Brigadier General Lenderman gave an overview of Joint Base San Antonio explaining that JBSA is the largest contingent of cyber outside of the metropolitan DC area. Lieutenant General (Ret) Bob Wood from AFCEA International announced that the Alamo Chapter is now the 5th largest chapter of the organization. Deloitte sponsored the “Capture the Flag” event for the second year in a row. Texas A&M GigEmBytes snagged the win for 2018.
Every even year brings the Wounded Warrior to Military Families Endowment Fund Benefit event. This year’s event had entertainment from Johnny P & The Wise Guys as well as PLINKO, food and some very generous donations. We hope to see you all back next year, November 18-21, 2019!
