2020 Fed 100 gala rescheduled for June

2020 Fed 100 

Due to the growing public health concerns regarding COVID-19 and the coronavirus pandemic, FCW and Public Sector 360 are postponing the 2020 Federal 100 Awards Gala

While it is disappointing to delay this celebration of outstanding individuals from across the federal IT community, we take the health and safety of our community seriously. The Washington, D.C., Health Department yesterday cautioned against mass gatherings until at least March 31, and we support that recommendation.

Originally scheduled for March 19, the 2020 Federal 100 Gala is now planned for Wednesday, June 3. The venue -- the Grand Hyatt Washington D.C. -- remains unchanged.

We will continue to monitor this rapidly evolving situation, and the related guidance from local and federal health authorities. Please look to the Federal 100 website (www.fed100.com) for any additional updates regarding the rescheduled Gala.

Thank you for your support and understanding. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
