I attended the IACT Holiday Party that was presented in association with the Connecticut Technology Council yesterday. The party was at Brewport in Bridgeport, CT, a great venue. Pizza, salad, and adult drinks were supplied! I met with the president of IACT, other IACT members. Looking forward to the party next year!
