Big kudos and congratulations to ConnellyWork’s A.J. Guenther who has been honored with the regional distinguished Young AFCEAN of the Year award for the DC-metro region.

“A.J. is a tireless advocate for AFCEA DC,” said Warren Suss, President of AFCEA DC. “His can-do attitude and willingness to pitch in on any and all tasks has made an invaluable impact on our chapter. From day one he has provided the insight and the energy necessary, not only to enhance our reputation, but to increase our impact. I am proud to serve alongside him on the board and thank him for his service.”

I have known Guenther for… years. When I started at Federal Computer Week nearly a decade ago, he was a young marketing guy. He is now director of Public Relations atConnellyWorks. He is a class act and the recognition is well deserved. Congratulations.
