The National Industry Liaison Group (NILG) held its 30th Annual ILG National Conference and Exhibition at the Hilton Waikoloa Village on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii from August 27 to August 31, 2012.

The conference included attendees, exhibitors, and speakers. The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) typically attends the conference in-person, but opted to attend via interactive high definition broadcast.

It’s not simply a matter of expense or even the public perception of federal employees traveling to a resort in Hawaii. It’s about priorities,”
