Connect. Share. Learn.

A new program designed for and by the over 38,000 special district government agencies across the country.

These special-purpose government entities play a vital role in helping cities and counties to function and thrive. In all corners of the country, they are providing fundamental services such as water and sanitation to essential facilities like roads, mass transit, parks, and much more.

This year, Government Technology and AT&T have joined forces to launch an entirely new initiative focused specifically on the needs of special districts. By giving you a forum to connect with your peers, share ideas and learn about the latest technology and trends in your fields, we are providing you the canvas on which you can do your best work. And we can’t wait to see where you go from here.



Connect with your peers through four regional special district summits that will be taking place in Michigan, Texas, California, and Florida.
