The Consumer Electronics Association will once again host CES on the Hill, to giving Washington policymakers - Members of Congress and key Hill staff - along with D.C. media the chance to interact with technology companies and products. The 2012 event will take place April 24 at the Rayburn House Office Building, Independence Avenue and South Capitol Street, Washington, D.C.
On April 25, CEA will host the eighth annual Digital Patriots Dinner to recognize Digital Patriots Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Representative Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) for their support of technology innovation. David Rubenstein, managing director, Carlyle Group, also will be honored for his role in advancing technology. The dinner will be at the Newseum, 555 Pennsylvania Ave., NW in Washington, D.C.
Proceeds from the Digital Patriots Dinner will be donated to the Ron Brown Scholar Program. The program is named for the late Secretary of Commerce, and inspired by his dedication to public service. The Ron Brown Scholar Program provides scholarships and support for bright but economically challenged African Americans seeking higher education.
