ACT-IAC Activity Status Page
ACT-IAC is monitoring the current government shutdown and sending our thoughts and wishes to those government and contractor employees who are not being paid. Like you, we hope for a speedy resolution. Because collaboration between government and industry is at the heart of what we do, we may need to adjust scheduled activities based on the situation, potentially including postponement, rescheduling or cancellation. We will post all changes on the web site and include them in appropriate emails and social media. So please check with us.
