ACT-IAC: Where government and industry leaders collaborate.

Champions Overview


2016 Champions Program - Apply Here

Applications are due January 9, 2016

The Champions Program provides executive-level instructors and curriculum to enhance skills and allow participants to provide improved leadership in their respective organizations. In addition, the Champions Program creates a collaborative environment where executives from government and industry can discuss and address major challenges within the federal technology marketplace.

The program is designed to:  

  • Bring senior leaders in Government and Industry (CIO’s CTOS’ CDO’s CISO’s and similar positions in government and major leaders from Industry) together to collaborate, plan, and otherwise advance the mission of Government and Government services to citizens. 
  • Allow industry and government executives to work together, understand each other’s issues and unravel challenges of the day enabling them to freely and openly discuss issues with each other in a not for attribution environment and to propose solutions to take back to their agencies and companies. 

The Champion program is the natural progression of the existing ACT-IAC Professional Development curricula. Associate, Voyager and Partner programs have received rave reviews from participants in developing their careers while collaborating with others at their level from government and industry.
Collaboration has been found as one of the key learning methodologies for career knowledge. Very often, senior level executives do not find the time to freely interact with each other in a controlled, not for attribution, relaxed setting. The Champion program will provide this peer-to-peer time.
