2/6/2014 - HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. -- The 2014 New Horizons Symposium, sponsored by the Lexington-Concord Chapter of the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association, will be held Feb. 25 through 26 at the Marriott Hotel in Newton, Mass.
The event provides an opportunity for Life Cycle Management Center program executive officers and program managers to exchange information with industry on current and emerging business opportunities. Both LCMC Hanscom PEOs, Maj. Gen. Craig Olson, C3I and Networks, and Steven Wert, Battle Management, are scheduled to speak.

There will also be a legislative affairs panel and a media panel.
