|Dixie Crow Chapter of Association of Old Crows On behalf of our Dixie Crow members, I would like to take the opportunity to welcome you to our website. As you browse our website you will be able to review some of the activities in which we are involved in addition to the latest information on our annual Electronic Warfare Technical Symposium and Conference.The Dixie Crow Chapter takes pride in its professional presence within the community. The Chapter was chartered in 1968 with approximately 15 members. Today over 350 military, DoD civilian, industry and academia representatives comprise the membership roll. The Dixie Crow Chapter has also grown in recognition. Each year the National AOC recognizes a local chapter as the Chapter of the year. Elements of evaluation include membership retention, Scholarship Program, community awareness, social functions and technical information awareness meetings. The Dixie Crows are multi-year Chapter of the Year Award winners taking the coveted award for 11 consecutive years beginning in 1995.
The Dixie Crows facilitate the objectives of the Association through social events, technical symposia, monthly meetings with guest speakers and a monthly newsletter. The Chapter recognized the need to create a forum for users, developers and maintainers of Electronic Warfare systems and components to share information and discuss common challenges and in 1976 held its first symposium. The symposium has become an annual event and is now in its 34th year; attended by representatives from industry, academia and government, some traveling great distances to meet and/or present with us each year, special information on Handy orten. In addition to a forum for technical interchange, the symposium is a major fund raiser to support the Dixie Crow Scholarship Fund and donations to various community and charitable organizations.
The Chapter leadership established a Scholarship Fund in 1979 to provide assistance to deserving individuals pursuing a degree in engineering/hard sciences with the potential for enhancing the field of electronic warfare. To date, the Chapter has provided over $500,000 in scholarship funds to over 600 individuals. The scholarships have been extended to DoD civilians and military enlisted personnel. The Dixie Crow Chapter also supports the Museum of Aviation. To date thru 2012, $175,000 has been pledged to benefit the Robins Air Force Base Museum of Aviation with contributions to date of $155,000. In addition to financial contribution, Dixie Crow members have participated in Habitat For Humanity, building homes for those who otherwise may not know the joy of home ownership.
The Dixie Crows is a vibrant organization with a bright future that works diligently to preserve, promote and advance the Electronic Warfare technology in the defense of our great nation. Feel free to contact myself or any Board Member with any questions or comments. We look forward to hearing from you!
