Make sure to block out the time on your calendar so you can attend the next meeting of the NVTC Data Center and Cloud Infrastructure Committee. Buddy Rizer, Executive Director of the Loudoun County Department of Economic Development (and the unofficial "godfather" of the data center industry), is going to give us a "State of the Union" on data centers and cloud in Northern Virginia.

Joining Buddy will be Fletcher Mangum Ph.D., Managing Partner of Mangum Economic Consulting. Dr. Mangum has been engaged by NVTC to conduct an economic analysis of Virginia's sales tax exemption for data centers and their customers. As you know, the sales tax exemption has been a significant catalyst for data center builds and cloud deployments in Virginia. The sales tax exemption is set to expire on June 30, 2020. A key legislative priority for the Data Center and Cloud Infrastructure Committee is to extend the program now so that companies can include the sales tax exemption in their 5-year cost/benefit models. Dr. Mangum will give us an early report on the study and its preliminary findings.
