Video: GSA Employees Get the Conference Beat


The Washington Post has uncovered video from that GSA awards conference in November 2010, at which 200 people were treated to gifts such as time-and-temperature picture frames and drumsticks.

It's not in quite the same vein as the music videos from the Public Buildings Service's infamous Western Regions Conference in October 2010, but it's still pretty amazing to watch -- especially the part where attendees are exhorted to bang their drumsticks in rhythm, "keeping integrity and accountability to that bass beat."
