Wishing you and your family a safe and happy holiday season from AOC!

AOC Webinars have been a tremendous asset providing AOC’s audience with learning, advocacy, and the exchange of information. Check out the 2022 calendar to register for upcoming webinars and hear from subject-matter experts on all things EW!

The AOC Crow Career Builder is a program created by AOC to connect our network of professionals with the next generation of crows. Through step by step communications, our mentors and mentees are given a template for creating a valuable working relationship. Mentees will also have the opportunity to network and socialize among people just like yourselves and make essential connections.

For mentors: Mentoring with AOC consists of a long-term relationship focused on supporting the growth and development of the mentee. A great mentor is able to lead their mentee with empathy, sensitivity and patience, while constantly adapting to changing times and complex circumstances.

To become a mentor with AOC, please contact Blain Bekele for the code.

AOC continues to connect Electromagnetic Warfare practitioners, industry partners, policymakers and procurement decision-makers.

The year 2020 was a massive interruption to life and business, changing how we work, how we connect and forced us into a new way of doing things. We have created new ways to connect and share with our members through these changing times. We have taken events to a virtual space and created new and exciting opportunities for our members to continue looking to AOC as industry leaders.

Now more than ever it's important to keep in touch and AOC sponsorships are a great way to be part of what's happening right now in the electromagnetic spectrum operations (EMSO) industry.

Partner with AOC to increase your reach!
By partnering with AOC, Industry Partners have a variety of ways to connect with members throughout the year. Stay relevant to your customer base, participate in high-level discussions and, most importantly, nurture relationships with key contacts.
