Registration for both sessions of the DHA Industry day filled up in a matter of a few days over the holidays. The good news for all parties is that the DHA will video record the sessions and make the recording and briefings available to those who cannot attend. Late last week, DHA posted the industry slides in advance of the session and thy are worth a read, whether you are planning to attend or not as they include an updated set of forecast items for DHA. G2X will be providing our perspective on the event late this week.
DATE: Tuesday, February 2, 2016
LOCATION: Arlington, VA
Following the DHA Industry Day on January 20th, this informative session will focus on how to pursue and position for opportunity at the Defense Health Agency. With perspective and insight from industry leaders including Scott Svabek, former DHA Procurement Director; Joe Grace, founder of Grace and Associates; Sara Byrd, BD Director at tiag and co-founder of FedTechCares; and Eric Gillespie, the Founder and CEO of Govini; the discussion is expected to provide ideas and tactics that your firm can begin acting on today.
DHA Happy Hour – New Time/New Place
DATE: Friday, January 29, 2016
LOCATION: Vienna, VA
From our friends at NetImpact Strategies – “We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the DHA Happy Hour, but changing the venue and the date so that we can combine it with a birthday celebration for Mark Goodge (our favorite CTO). Some of you may have already received the invite below from Naomi Updegrove.” This is an informal happy hour, but if you are planning to attend we recommend you let Kavita Kalatur know at [email protected] , so that they can plan for an appropriate headcount.
