HR Technology Specialists/HRIS “I wanted to say again how much I enjoyed the conference. I received more benefit than I had
anticipated. The power of networking is not to be underestimated!” -Pat Heinig, Chief Enterprise
Architect, US Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
“It’s a unique approach that I’ve never done before, and I found it very useful being able to sit down
with vendors for a good period of time to talk about what we’re doing at the FCC, and seeing how
their solutions might really map well to our systems and our processes…I hoped to get some new ideas
and insights into how to do things better and that aspect was very successful.” - Marc Noble, Associate
Computer Security Officer, FCC
“People seem generally less distracted {here}. I didn’t see blackberries or cell phones being used too
much. It seemed for a day and a half or so that everyone’s attention was largely trained on both the
contact of our discussions and what we are going to do afterwards” - - Andy Bochman, Director of

“conVuge offered a unique opportunity for focused, extended discussions with many different individuals and groups. Every
event (meals, sessions, meetings) became a networking opportunity. Access to anyone, almost anytime, over the three days
was easy and appreciated.” - Lt. Col. Craig Kaucher, National Defense University
“I had a chance to meet companies with products that we hope to be able to integrate in our environment very soon…I would
certainly do it again if given the opportunity!” - Daniel Ragsdale, IT Program Director, Department of EE & CS, US Military Academy
“I found them (the one-on-one meetings) to be quite useful because it was a simple low-key conversation, not a high-pressure sales
pitch. We can get to know each other a little bit…Two benefits (to conVurge forums). First, the opportunity to network with other
people from other parts of the government. The other is talking to vendors and contractors about what they’re doing, because
sometimes it’s easier to find about someone face-to-face than it is through a website.” -Con Kenney, Chief Enterprise Architect, FAA

conVurge Casino Night
High-ranking government officials and executives from innovative solution
providers alike always enjoy conVurge’s Casino Nights! In what has become a
trademark of conVurge’s executive forums, you’ll have the chance to network
and build relationships with these exceptional individuals while shooting craps,
playing blackjack, and listening to live jazz. Nowhere else will you have the
chance to share these fun times with a crowd like this!
Bowling & Karaoke Night
Just added to select conVurge Forums, the conVurge Bowling Tournament and
Karaoke competition provide yet more opportunities to network with peers. Split
into groups of 3-4, participants will bowl at The Homestead's bowling alley and
compete for 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place prizes. Afterwards, all will congregate at the
Player's Pub for an informal karaoke competition.
hrGOV: A Focus on Networking
conVurge’s innovative model for executive forums is based upon the idea that
building good business practices is synonymous with building good business
relationships. For this reason, when you attend hrGOV in March of 2005 you will
have the opportunity to not only meet the individuals who are creating
innovative products or leading government initiatives, you will have the chance
to speak with them, one-on-one, in an environment conducive establishing
successful business relationships. At conVurge, we think of it as networking with
substance; you’ll think of it as success.
