EDGEAM is a new addition to the GBEF annual calendar. Programs are 90-minutes, complimentary to the core GBEF EDGESeries agenda, and are designed to be provocative, interactive and focused on specific challenges of interest to Federal agencies and other government jurisdictions. Speakers will be respected government and business professionals on the front lines, whose careers demonstrate knowledge, leadership, and vision.

The program begins with a networking breakfast for GBEF  Executive Committee, Associate members, and invited government guests.

Space is limited so we encourage your early registration if you would like to attend.
