Apps4VA Seeking Mentors for Students
Apps4VA, a program that engages the public in developing fresh and innovative ideas, seeks to match students with professionals who would be willing to mentor them. Recently, regional high school students were challenged to enter an idea for a theoretical app or to develop an actual working prototype based on K-12 education data. Professionals interested in volunteering would be mentoring winners of the challenge. Mentorship roles could range from conducting a one-time session on the subject of your choice, to building the apps – with or without student participation. Mentors could also connect students with individuals or organizations who could build their apps.
Spend time with these students and help to grow the next generation of technologists! There is not a defined time commitment – volunteers may participate whenever time is available. For more information or to discuss how you can help, contact Katie Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-268.5145. For more information about the Apps4VA competition, please click here.

Telecommunications Industry Association Presents The Future of the Network
Date: October 8 - 10
For the first time in the history of telecommunications, consumer spending on mobile data has surpassed spending on mobile voice services.

With this challenge as the backdrop, TIA is bringing together influential industry executives, thought leaders and policymakers for the only event focused purely on The Future of the Network. TIA 2013, taking place October 8-10 in Washington, D.C., will address disruptive technologies and changing business models as companies position themselves for success with wireless, the transition to all IP networks, virtualization and software defined networking, Cloud, M2M, smart buildings, and other critical trends. The conference will offer attendees ideas and direction for thriving in the rapidly-changing ICT environment. Please click here for more information. Registration opens June 2013.
