The Council got TechAmerican from the trade group CompTIA, which acquired the foundation just last May. Although the name will change, you can still count on the annual events you've come to expect each year. Those include the Vision Forecast and Conference, the CIO survey and the American Technology Awards. Alan Chvotkin is executive vice president and counsel at the Professional Services Council. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with details on the acquisition.
