George Mason GovCon Alumni Happy Hour — November 21, 2019!

Flower Cards small


Thursday, November 21
6:00 - 8:00 pm
Cafe Deluxe, Tysons Corner

We are planning for another gathering in the successful series of Happy Hours for Alumni. Networking and engagement all in one evening.

You can expect to meet and share with alumni, School of Business Faculty, and members of the Center's Advisory Board. The events are held in Tysons Corner.

A fair number of Center activities, for students, alumni and the GovCon industry owe their creation to the conversations that take place at this event.


We Know You Know?

The GovCon market is a huge ($500B+), diverse, sophisticated, and interesting industry whose business issues are worthy of specialized academic study, research, and curricula.

But Did You Know?

The industry is based in the Northern Virginia-DC Capital region, likely employs 1 in every 6 professionals in the area, and has some 10,000 Mason alumni working in it.

That is a lot of alumni in the industry. And that is why we created a LinkedIn Group and a Campaign to raise membership to 1,000 alumni.

Patriots in Federal GovCon

LinkedIn Group Link

Thanks to a recommendation by a group of alumni of George Mason and the School of Business — who recognized the important contribution of alumni to this industry, and to the value of industry experience that can be shared with students — the Patriots in Federal GovCon LinkedIn Group was created. It is an online tool that works in many ways:

  • To share your interests in the work of the Center for Government Contracting.
  • To provide an avenue for alumni to connect with practitioners in the federal government or industry.
  • To share openings and open doors for student internships or employment in this diverse and fascinating industry.

Please consider this an open invitation to join the Patriots in Federal GovCon group.
