Subject: Supplemental pool #1 -- Tech CEO meeting

Pool has staged outside the Indian Treaty Room for the opening session of the White House meeting with tech CEOs to mark "technology week." The entrance to the EEOB features an easel with an "Office of American Innovation" sign. On the 4th floor, easels mark breakout session locations like "Modernizing Government Services." We're expecting to witness remarks from SILOTUS/White House Senior Advisor Jared Kushner and Assistant to the President Chris Liddell. Liddell is expected to outline the full day of meetings in his remarks. White House estimates we'll be in for about 20 min.

Kushner walked past the pool into the room with Avi Berkowitz at 12:54.
