Digital States Performance Institute (DSPI)
The Digital States Performance Institute (DSPI) is not a place, but a community of interest around modernizing and improving government. The newly expanded DSPI builds on the successes of the bi-annual Digital States Survey with a year-round program of ongoing original research, analysis and tools in the strategic planning process through regional events, Webinars, online communities or panels. All of it is intended to extend the value of the Digital States benchmarks through the documentation and sharing of best and emerging practices by states that are committed to meeting today's needs and tomorrow's expectations.
Center experts are available to keynote your conference or event on a wide array of topics. From the United Nations to the National Conference of State Legislatures, Center speakers have provided thought-provoking speeches and have added tremendous value to conferences around the country.
