YAFCEA Bethesda Senior Government Executive Dinner

Posted by Kathleen Smith

The Third Annual Senior Government Executive Dinner will be Wednesday, July 28, 2010, at the JW Marriott. This event provides an environment for informal conversation between government and industry leaders. Last year’s event was a huge success and we know this year will be even better! The dinner allows attendees to meet with senior government leaders in a neutral, transparent forum to discuss topics related to the changing landscape in the federal government and the complex needs and challenges they are facing today. A senior government executive at each table will lead a discussion on one of the following topics:

  • Cyber Security
  • Web 2.0/Cloud Computing/Virtualization
  • Information Sharing/Open Government
  • Another relevant topic of their choice

A pre-dinner reception will allow attendees to interact with the government leaders. Plans are for 10-15 senior government executives and about 100 attendees, so there will be good discussion opportunities at each of the tables.

Participating CIOs include:

  • Kirit Amin, PMP, CIO, Bureau of Consular Affairs, US Department of State
  • Michael W. Carleton, CIO, Health and Human Services
  • Andy Blumenthal, CTO, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives
  • Patrick F. Kennedy, Under Secretary for Management, US Department of State
  • Stephen Warren, Deputy Chief Information Officer, Department of Veterans Affairs
  • Vance Hitch, Chief Information Officer, Department of Justice
  • Thomas Boyce, Deputy CIO & Director, OIS Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  • Oscar Morales, Director, IT & Resources management Dicision, Office of Pesticide Programs, EPA
  • Ed O’Hare, Assistant Commissioner, Integrated Technology Services FAS, GSA
  • Dr. Paul Tibbits, Deputy CIO for Enterprise Development, VA
  • Stephen Warren, Principal Deputy Assistant, Secretary in the Office of Information and Technology (PDAS/IT) and Deputy CIO, VA

The table seating for participants is based on the discussion topic, which is chosen during the registration process. Participants will not be able to base their table preference on the government executive leading the discussion, which will remain anonymous until the event.

We hope to see you there! Please click here to register.
