NVTC also honored Gov. Bob McDonnell with the 2013 Chairman's Award for his
leadership in ensuring Virginia remains a top state for business, and
presented the Earle C. Williams Lifetime Achievement Award to Former CEO of
DynCorp Paul Lombardi in recognition of his exceptional service to NVTC and
the region's technology industry.

During his keynote address, McDermott offered insight into the powerful yet
often misunderstood millennial generation, challenging technology companies to
channel millennials' passion and engage them through important projects,
opportunities to do charity work, and support for their careers. According to
McDermott, millennials prefer to work for companies with a purpose than
receive personal recognition through raises or promotions. If employers
provide an environment with purpose, embrace intellectual curiosity, and
create a culture where failure is acceptable, the industry will tap into
millennials' considerable power as employees and consumers.
