Government Technology’s passion is helping spread best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector. The Oregon Digital Government Summit is designed to do just that. The summit has an advisory board that gathers public- and private-sector leaders to create an agenda designed to make that passion relevant and actionable to the state and local government organizations attending the summit.
