IT Service and Support Managers bring their teams to celebrate their hard work and success throughout the year. You supply your team and we will supply an inspirational speaker, great atmosphere and a three-course meal. There will be time to network with area professionals and meet our Help Desk Analyst and Desktop Support of the Year nominees.

Our keynote speaker is Theresa Proctor, who is an award-winning speaker and leader. We will recognize our HDI Analyst of the Year and Desktop Support Technician Nominees and announce the winner of the Capital Area Analyst and Desktop Support Technician award.

Sponsor HDI Capital AreaSponsor HDI Capital Area

HDI Capital Area Local Chapter provides a unique opportunity for our sponsors. We hold meetings monthly and rotate them between Southern Maryland, Northern Virginia and Washington DC. We are different in the fact that our members and attendees are over 90% managers and above. This means the decision makers are in the room with you. In addition, because we rotate our meetings, different business segments attend our meetings in the different locations. This allows our sponsors to strategically plan what meetings they need to attend in order to target their audience. Sponsoring our chapter will provide your company or organization exposure to federal agencies, state agencies, local government agencies, healthcare, higher education, large IT systems integrators, commercial companies, schools, and small businesses.

You will have the opportunity to network and dine with the decision makers at every meeting. In addition, your company will reach our members and attendees through advertising on our newsletters and meeting announcements. The opportunities are endless. We have over 32 federal agencies that attend our meetings. Your company will gain access to over 500 members, and over 950 participants and attendees. Our chapter is made up of 46% federal government and contractors and 50% commercial and IT system integration organizations, 2% healthcare, 1% higher education, and 1 % other company types. This is an opportunity you can’t afford to miss. Our typical meetings usually have between 40 and 75 attendees, and our special events usually have between 75 and 180 attendees.  For more information, visit
