There will also be an Awards Luncheon with keynote address by Dr. Stephen Fuller, an authority on economic, housing, and employment trends in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. The Committee is introducing vendor and firm exhibits to the Conference this year. If you are interested in exhibit space, or know a company that should be approached for exhibiting, please contact Joe Monahan at 703 450 0800 or jmonahan@alphacorporation.com.
