"Technology is an integral part of our daily life.  It surrounds us and improves our lives – whether at work or play.  Those of us who work in Information Technology in the Public sector feel the pressure and own the responsibility to make sure the services we deliver to citizens and customers truly do improve their lives.  The Minnesota Digital Government Summit gives us the opportunity to explore trends and new ideas, but more importantly to meet and collaborate with other IT professionals dedicated to improving government services.  I encourage you to attend and look forward to seeing you at the 2014 Summit."
