To date, we’ve had a good cross-section of interests represented including lessons learned (what to do/what not to do), finding venues for improving or troubleshooting aspects of government contracting, and of course networking or other forums to increase opportunities for one's organization. 


To move ahead, we are holding an introductory planning meeting on Tuesday, December 16th at 4:30 pm. The meeting will be held at LMI (my firm) which is in Tysons Corner, right at the intersection of Route 7 and 495.


An enthusiastic champion for the group has agreed to support us through food and refreshments. We will plan to run more than an hour, but no longer than an hour and a half. Details on the meeting location and directions are located below. If possible, please confirm your participation to me at


Logistics: There is ample garage parking. There are visitor spots and direct access into the building on the 3rd floor. Please go to the reception area (can’t miss it) on the first floor to get a visitor’s badge. The meeting will be held on the 8th floor.

Background info, her prior writeup:

Thanks to Alan for suggesting this roundtable and for the warm welcome to the Club.  

I would like to hear of your interest in establishing a roundtable on Government Contracting.

  • What outcomes do you want to see from a roundtable about this subject?
  • What topics are worthy of discussion?
  • What conversations or dialogues could you benefit from?  

Also, I would like to understand the diversity of perspectives you have to offer so please indicate whether you represent a business, public sector, non-profit or other type of organization.  My bias tends to be federal, so definitely indicate if you have an interest in state and local procurement also.
Please contact me at with your input. Based on your interest, I will look to plan an introductory lunch meeting at Brio, potentially the first or second Friday in December depending on the level of interest we hear over the next week.
 A potential starter topic
* What changes might we expect under the new administration? What markets will see an impact? (see Washington Post article: )

Also, please note: If you're a current member of the DC Wharton Club, you can save $50 on a procurement program in Maryland on December 10. Click here for more information.

(If you're not now a member, join or renew, to get this saving and other savings worth many hundreds of dollars throughout the year, plus invitations to exclusive events).
