The forum, to be held at Gaylord National Resort Hotel and Convention Center in Prince George's County, Md. on the Potomac River, will bring together human capital professionals who are transforming talent management in their government organizations for a full day of learning and networking, and a high-impact post-forum networking reception.

"Strategic human capital management and workforce initiatives are top priority for federal government agencies across the United States," said Allen Zeman, President of HCI Government Solutions. "At this HCI forum, created specifically for government organizations, attendees will learn to assess their organization's talent, build a human capital plan that will further the agency's mission, maximize workforce and succession planning efforts, and examine next practices on hiring and retaining a productive, multi-generational workforce. It's an incredible opportunity for government leadership."
