PAST EVENT

Dec 10 - 11, 2012

"We are seeing dramatic changes in technology at an ever-increasing speed. The Georgia Digital Government Summit will give us an opportunity to explore innovative ways to take advantage of these changes. The Summit isn't targeted only to state agencies. Local governments can benefit every bit as much from keynote presentations, breakout sessions and vendor exhibits, and it's a great venue for strengthening relationships and collaboration between state and local agencies. The Summit isn't targeted only to IT staff either. It's carefully structured to help agency business leaders better understand how technology can support their business objectives. I hope you'll make time for the Summit - you won't be disappointed."

- Calvin Rhodes, Chief Information Officer, State of Georgia
