Fortna will assist the board chairman in overseeing AFCEA’s affairs and serve on the nonprofit organization’s budget and finance committee as vice chairman, AFCEA said Thursday.

“As a long-standing member of AFCEA, it’s an honor to join the leadership team and help foster communication among these groups on matters of national security,” said Fortna, who also serves on Fortinet Federal‘s board.

Fortna, a more than 15-year AFCEA member, has served as chairman of the organization’s audit panel and member of the executive committee and board.
