CRA Hosts 2012 Tisdale Fellows Lunch

tisdale_fellowsCRA was pleased to welcome a 2012 Tisdale Fellow as a summer intern.

TJ Kaplan, a recent graduate of Georgia Tech in Electrical Engineering, spent eight weeks learning about science and technology policy in Washington through his work with the CRA Government Affairs staff and the Computing Community Consortium, and from other Tisdale Fellows.

The Tisdale Fellowship Program brings college students to Washington for summer internships that explore current public policy issues of critical importance to the high technology sector of the economy. In addition to CRA, other participants in the program this year included: Philips Electronics; Business Software Alliance; Dell Computers; Hewlett-Packard; and Technology CEO Council.

On June 28, CRA hosted a luncheon for the Fellows, after which government affairs director, Peter Harsha, provided an overview of CRA’s activities.
