PAST EVENT

Sep 25, 2012

"I am very excited about the 1st Annual Mississippi Digital Government Summit. Our vision is for the Summit to become the leading event where government leaders can focus on enabling technology to be an effective tool to streamline government and provide vital services to our constituents. In times of continued fiscal stress, advances in information technology present an opportunity to investigate the potential for transforming the business of government, and envision the government of tomorrow. The Mississippi Digital Government Summit will provide a cost-effective and convenient venue for us to meet and discuss our shared challenges. I encourage your attendance and look forward to seeing you there."

- Dr. Craig Orgeron, Executive Director, MS Department of Information Technology Services

Tim's life experiences are both extensive and varied. He was raised in an Air Force family and "rebelled" by serving as a Navy man.

He now devotes himself to teaching these skills to others so that their interactions and life experiences can be expanded, maximized, and, most important of all, fun!
