"The 2012 Oregon Digital Government summit is planned for May 15th here in Salem. This is the second year for this event and the first year was very successful. A gathering of this type is a wonderful opportunity to share with your peers, renew business acquaintances and to recharge our batteries as we endeavor to improve services and manage costs in all of our organizations. I am looking forward to this year's event and hope to see you there!"
