At 25, ACT makes the scene in Washington

The American Council for Technology put work aside one recent night to mark 25 years of leadership in the government IT community with a gala at Washington's Union Station.
ACT, which last fall changed its name from the Federation of Government Information Processing Councils, has over the years sponsored many a government-industry function built around IT issues. This time, the only thing on the agenda was fun. (And a bit of networking, of course.)

Homeland Security Department CIO Steve Cooper takes a spin on the dance floor with his wife, Susie.

Guests mingle in Union Station's packed East Room.
