"It's exciting to know that the value of information and quality of speakers continues to increase with every year," said Ward Morgan CEO of CivicPlus. "We are confident that city, county and state government professionals -- regardless of how they manage their web sites -- will find the WMC's workshops, breakout sessions and keynote presentations highly relevant and very useful in everyday practice."

The 2009 WMC will provide comprehensive briefings and discussions on:

In its third year, the 2009 Web site Management Conference will take place at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 4-6, 2009.
