PAST EVENT

Nov 27 - 28, 2012

"The times are certainly challenging but they are also driving us to figure out ways to be more creative in delivering services. Governor Corbett has given the IT community a clear mandate to find ways to do things better, smarter, cheaper and faster. We can't do it without strong partnerships - both new and old. The Pennsylvania Executive Leadership Forum is the ideal place for us to share ideas, solutions and lessons learned. The timing couldn't be better, and I encourage and welcome you to join in the discussion."

- George White, Chief Information Officer, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
