Join NVTC and the Northern Virginia technology community at our biggest networking event of the year: TechCelebration, celebrating 20 years of NVTC!

This stellar event will feature keynote speaker NASA Administrator Charles F. Bolden Jr., introduced by John Howard, business development manager for CDW-G. As administrator, Bolden leads NASA, which was recently ranked as the most innovative federal agency, including next-generation space technologies like the recently announced "monster rocket" for human exploration in space. Bolden manages NASA’s resources to advance the agency's missions and goals, including investments in next generation space technologies like a space-based optical communications system, a deep space atomic clock and a space solar sail.

As a special tribute, NVTC will present the Earle C. Williams Lifetime Achievement Award, which is presented to a person whose lifetime personal and professional endeavors have made a significant impact on the Northern Virginia technology community, to Dr. Alan G. Merten, president of George Mason University, who will retire in June 2012.

NVTC and Sen. Mark Warner will also honor the core team leaders of NVTC's Arlington National Cemetery Task Force with the 2011 Chairman’s Award, and NVTC will announce the finalists and winners of the 2011 NVTC/Washington Technology Government Contractor CTO Innovator Awards, honoring chief technology officers within the region's government contracting community for their critical contributions to achieving results for their customers and their leadership within their own companies. Congratulations to the finalists!

This night promises to bring excitement and networking with technology's brightest stars! Register now to be a part of this super NoVa celebration, 20 years in the making!
