Unlocking the Potential of Data

AFCEA Bethesda’s Engage & Connect Series brings government and industry together. On March 22, former Deputy Federal CIO, Maria Roat, sat down for a fireside chat to discuss her extraordinary career in government service, as well as cross agency challenges and future opportunities, with Francis Rose from Scoop News Group.

For the next event we are extending the discussion from the AFCEA Bethesda Webinar Series Data Chapter to hear government leaders discuss how their agencies are unlocking the potential of data. Federal workers collect, create, analyze and distribute massive amounts of data from weather forecasts to economic indicators to health statistics. How are agencies handling the ownership, management and application of one of the most valuable (and strategic) assets at their disposal to meet modern-day mission and citizen requirements?

Please join AFCEA Bethesda on May 5, 2022, at the Grand Hyatt Washington from 4:30 PM to 7:00 PM. A cocktail networking reception will follow the discussion. Government speakers from the current webinar series and members of our Government Advisory Council will be invited to attend, as well. The event is free to government attendees and open to the Press.
