The Nebraska Digital Government Summit provides a forum to foster discussion and dialogue on the use of information technology as a strategic tool for managers, executives and policy makers.   Each year the advisory board for this event puts together a program that offers solutions to agency challenges through the use of IT.  I invite you to spend the day with your peers collaborating and hearing about new trends and emerging technologies.  It will be well worth your time.
