PAST EVENT

Aug 1, 2013

"Now is an exciting time to work in the IT industry, and most especially in the public sector. In order to best serve our citizens, we are making collaborative, innovative decisions every day - decisions that will set the bar for how technology can support and strengthen government services. This work requires dedicated leadership from people who are passionate about the role they play. The 2013 Minnesota Digital Government Summit brings us together to collaborate on ideas and energize one another for important work throughout Minnesota's public sector."

- Carolyn Parnell, Chief Information Officer, State of Minnesota
