Dear Federal 100 Winners and Guests,

  

We are thrilled to announce that the 32nd Annual Federal 100 Awards Ceremony will return as a LIVE format this year and we can’t wait to see you in person once again. COVID-19 remains an ongoing public health concern, however, and we are committed to making this event as safe and comfortable as possible for everyone.

  

In accordance with DC Health Guidelines that were updated on July 31, all attendees will be required to wear a mask while not eating and drinking at the gala. Out of an abundance of caution for our winners, guests, sponsors and employees, we will require all staff and attendees to provide either:

  

  • Proof of full vaccination (must show name and date of last dose), which can be uploaded as a photo or PDF during the registration process, OR

  • Proof of a negative COVID test within 48 hours of Aug. 27 gala.

  

In addition, we ask that anyone exhibiting signs or symptoms of ANY virus or illness on on Aug. 27 please stay home and forego the gala. For additional information on the Hyatt Group’s Commitment to Safety and precautions, please click here.

  

Ensuring the safety and comfort level of all our Federal 100 Awards Gala attendees is our utmost priority, and we appreciate your assistance in minimizing the COVID-19 risks for all involved. Working together, we can ensure that in-person events like this one continue in 2021 and beyond.

  

Sincerely,

Troy K. Schneider, Editor-in-Chief, FCW
