The AECF’s mission is to provide a forum for Fortune 1000 companies and other organizations to discuss best practices for conducting business electronically. Through our monthly activities, members and guests can network, hear from experts and business leaders on a variety of e-business and e-commerce topics, share experiences and best-practices with processes and technologies, and discuss ways to increase e-business efficiencies. Our goal is to be the authoritative resource for current information and networking opportunities for e-business and e-commerce business practices and technologies.
