PAST EVENT

May 22 - 23, 2013

"When citizens interact with their government, they do not compare their experiences to other public sector services. They compare government to private industry leaders who exemplify customer centricity and quality commitment. Come join us at this year's Digital Government Summit and learn how technology can enable the modernization of government and the services we provide."

- Aaron Sandeen, Chief Information Officer, State of Arizona
