WHAT: Senior government officials from Congress, the White House, and federal agencies will convene at the half-day Tech Trends Conference, presented by the Professional Services Council (PSC), on Sept. 25 to discuss the top IT issues facing the federal government and how to deliver more effective mission results.

Speakers include Matt Lira from the White House Office of American Innovation, Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX), a champion of the Modernizing Government Technology (MGT) Act, NASA Chief Information Officer Renee Wynn, and officials from Department of Defense (DoD), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Health and Human Services (HHS) and the General Services Administration (GSA).
