PAST EVENT

Aug 28 - 29, 2013

"The North Carolina Digital Government Summit has been a tradition for years and its timing couldn't be better in 2013. Governor McCrory has made it his mission to streamline government while improving customer service. Technology makes it possible, and a lot is expected of us. Let's use this Summit as an opportunity to step outside the box and brainstorm with our peers and industry solution providers to explore new and better ways to get things done. I hope you can join the discussion and I look forward to seeing you there."

- Chris Estes, Chief Information Officer, North Carolina
