Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 26, 2011
Representatives of the information technology (IT) industry’s solution provider community will travel here in early November as participants in a “fly-in” organized by CompTIA, the non-profit trade association for the IT industry.
Solution providers are expected to discuss a wide range of issues during their time in Washington Nov. 1-3. Discussion topics are likely to include health information technology; privacy; data breach notification; cybersecurity; workforce development; taxation; regulatory matters; access to capital; and government contracting opportunities for small IT firms.
“The nation depends on a strong IT industry and infrastructure for commerce, communications, education, healthcare, security and virtually all other facets of day-to-day life,” said Elizabeth Hyman, vice president, public advocacy, CompTIA. “IT solution providers are on the front lines making all of this possible.
“That’s why it’s so important for solution providers to have a forum where they can engage and interact directly with their elected officials and government policy makers,” she continued. “Enthusiasm and support are high for our Washington fly-in. We anticipate bringing a strong cross-section of solution providers from across the country to the nation’s capital this November.”
