"In challenging times, we have a choice: to close ranks and proceed cautiously or to go beyond traditional boundaries in search of game-changing innovations. Business as usual is not sustainable, so clearly the latter is the better choice, and the 12th annual Ohio Digital Government Summit is the perfect time and place to do it. I encourage you not only to attend this year's Summit but to be an active part of the discussion. I look forward to seeing you there!" - Stu Davis, Chief Information Officer, State of Ohio "This will be my 12th year attending the Ohio Digital Government Summit, and I look forward to it every year. This year's Summit is especially important because of the challenges we face. My staff and I plan to take full advantage of this opportunity to learn about new ideas, new technologies and new partnerships."

- Bruce Hotte, Chief Information Officer, Ohio Department of Health
