Drupal GovCon is the highly anticipated annual conference organized by Drupal4Gov for the DC/MD/VA Drupal community and wider Drupal government community. We bring together people from all over the country who use, develop, design, and support the Drupal platform with a focus in government. We come together every year, to learn, improve, and innovate as a community. 

The conference offers a unique platform for learning, networking, and collaboration, with a focus on empowering government agencies to leverage Drupal's capabilities effectively. Although there is a focus on government, there is also a heavy representation of attendees from the private, non-profit, and education sectors as well.
