PAST EVENT

May 1 - 2, 2012

"The Digital Government Summit presents a unique opportunity for IT leadership at all levels of New Jersey government to come together with one clear focus: improving how IT continues to enable our governments. Networking leads to sharing great ideas, successes and challenges while building collaborative forums that will span multiple years and many successful technology ventures. As a new IT leader in New Jersey, I'm anxious to meet my IT leadership colleagues in both government and industry. It is my hope this event is well attended to create that arena of sharing and cooperative support."

- Steve Emanuel, Chief Information Officer, State of New Jersey
