A message from our Keynote Speaker

Information Technology has become the largest influence in Michigan’s successful comeback and will continue to drive innovations in government, so don’t miss this year’s Michigan Digital Government Summit. We are celebrating the 14th year of Michigan’s premier IT event for public sector professionals. State government is now making ongoing strategic investments in IT to the tune of more than $60 million annually, so it’s more important than ever that we collaborate and network to ensure we are all working together to guarantee success. Don’t miss this chance to think strategically and be a part of the conversation to create a better government.
