ME Top Items - November 25, 2004


The largest annual conference of Government executives is moving! After many years as a popular and significant government Fall conference, the Interagency Resources Management Conference (IRMCO) sponsored by the General Services Administration, in partnership with the Federal Chief Information Officers, Chief Financial Officers, Human Resources Management Council, and Chief Acquisition Officers Councils, is moving to the Spring timeframe, namely, May 1 – 4, 2005 at Cambridge, Maryland.

IRMCO is a government executive conference that emphasizes significant and timely issues challenging government across a variety of communities and disciplines. With its appearance in the Spring of 2005, IRMCO not only continues to bring executives together in relevant dialogues, but will also be well positioned to play a more important role in providing a government forum that will emphasize guidance in the Federal Government planning process.
