PAST EVENT

Sep 24 - 25, 2013

"This year's Michigan Digital Government Summit marks a milestone, as we celebrate the eleventh year of Michigan's premiere IT event for public sector professionals. Having worked at both the local and state level of government, I get excited about this event because it brings us together from all levels of government, working collaboratively and sharing ideas that can help our common customer - the citizens of Michigan. This event gives us the chance to think strategically and help set the direction for better government. It's a unique opportunity to learn and network with your peers and I hope to see you in Lansing at the eleventh annual Digital Government Summit!"
