EDGESeries is an agenda of programs, each focused on a US Federal government mission and the technologies driving it. Executive Committee, Executive Committee Government, and Emeritus members can expect in-person presentations from relevant senior Federal appointed, career, and elected officials, and live on-site presentations broadcast into the program venue from the US state and local jurisdictions, and US/NATO partner nations. Associate members will be able to join the program virtually.

Complementing each program will be a Focus on Technology segment highlighting a technology or unique service capability relevant to the mission focus of each EDGESeries program.

Identity management, 5G, artificial intelligence and advanced analytics, quantum and edge computing, and cloud and IT modernization strategies, all will be incorporated into mission discussions featuring leaders from government, business, and recognized SMEs.
