  • Many believe AI will advance government; changing the speed, reliability, and ability for agencies to make more informed decisions and better deliver on their missions. Integral to leveraging the power of AI is data which floods many agencies yet is often underutilized or even locked up due to lack of resources, knowledge of tools, and compliance.

    Fortunately, cloud-based analytics capabilities allow these datasets to be turned into knowledge that can empower agencies to take advantage of AI capabilities that can help agencies make more informed decisions, drive efficiency and become more citizen friendly.

    With this in mind, we invite you to join the Microsoft Azure Government user community on Wednesday, April 25, 6 – 8:30 p.m., for an evening of presentations, demos and discussion on some of the hottest topics in government today – AI and Analytics – at 1776 in Washington, DC.

    - Best Practices and challenges for government with AI and Analytics

    - How government is using AI today and vision of the future

    - Top AI and Analytics solutions along with exciting demos

      As always, there will be great networking opportunities and refreshments during our Meetup, which is FREE and open to the public. We also invite you to check out and join our Microsoft Azure Gov DC user community on Meetup. This dynamic community of over 1,500 members hosts monthly Meetups to share best practices in driving cloud innovation in government.

    • It's back! Lee-Fendall House's much-anticipated annual speakeasy fundraiser returns for the third year - and it's better than ever. 

      From our front-row seat on North Washington Street in Old Town Alexandria, the Lee-Fendall House Museum has witnessed three centuries of Alexandria and national history. But all those years of a front-row seat have taken their toll. Both the passage of time and the rumble of constant traffic on Washington Street have left the house’s historic foundations in distress and at risk.

      On Saturday, September 22nd, we invite you to join us for Sips & Secrets: A Speakeasy Night, to help us raise the funds needed to restore the foundation and commemorate the Lee-Fendall House's Prohibition-era history.

      • Enjoy 1920s-style drinks as we raise a glass to the Downham family, who once made Lee-Fendall their home as prominent Alexandria liquor dealers before Prohibition.

      • Dance to some great jazz and ragtime, and brush up on your skills to enter our Charleston contest.

      • Show up in your best flapper or mobster style and win a prize for the best 1920s costume.

      • And more - keep an eye on our Facebook page as plans take shape!

      General admission tickets include three drink tickets for cocktails, wine, or beer, heavy hors d'oeuvres and dessert, and all the speakeasy fun you can handle! New this year is a general admission price for young professionals (ages 21-30; all guests must be 21 years or older to attend). 

      Interested in an insider's look at Lee-Fendall's Prohibition past? Join us at 6:30 PM for a VIP pre-reception, including an exclusive liquor tasting and a tour of the house that focuses on how Prohibition changed the lives of the Downham family and other Alexandrians. Those holding current Lee-Fendall House Museum & Garden memberships may attend as VIPs for the price of general admission. 

      Interested in sponsorship opportunities for the event or our silent auction? Contact Megan Ritter, event chairperson, at MRitter1776@gmail.com or 410-259-9273.
