Thanks to Janice & Staff!
Janice and her staff at District of Columbia's Unified Communications Center were great hosts for our tour of their beautiful new facility following this year's Government Customer Support Conference. The diverse scope of their work and their enthusiasm for it provided us a very educational and memorable experience. Look for another great site tour opportunity in conjunction with GCSC '08!
