Connecting state and local government leaders
Our annual Tech Summit is June 26-27. Come hear how local leaders from across the country are using technology to address the biggest issues facing communities.
Technology has become intrinsic to a successful, modern government. Whether in the less glamorous work to streamline operations and reduce costs or in the more exciting innovations to address the biggest issues facing communities, state and local governments are turning to technology to bring about positive, long-term change.
Bolstered by a wave of federal funding, these leaders face a unique opportunity to leverage technology like never before. Doing so requires not only a deep understanding of the tools and technologies to be employed, but also of the issues to be addressed—from cyber threats and outdated legacy systems to deteriorating public transit and the effects of climate change.
On June 26 and June 27, Route Fifty and GCN will host the GovExec SLG Tech Summit. With both virtual and in-person programming, this two-day event will explore those issues and the solutions that technology provides.
Featured speakers include:
- Yvette Taylor, Regional Administrator, Region 4, Federal Transit Authority
- Greg Chavarria, City Manager, City of Fort Lauderdale
- Alix Desulme, Mayor, City of North Miami
- Santiago “Santi” Garces, Chief Information Officer, City of Boston
- Jennifer Garrett, Assistant Deputy Secretary, Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services
- Christine Hallquist, Executive Director, VT Community Broadband Board
In addition to the virtual program, we’ll be hosting our June 27 program in Miami. As a rising tech hub in the U.S., we’re excited to take the GovExec SLG Tech Summit beyond the screen and connect with our audience in person. If you are in Miami or the surrounding areas, we hope you come out for these noteworthy discussions and networking opportunities. For those not local to the greater Miami area, we will have a virtual option so that you can take part. All participants are eligible to receive continuing professional education credit. You can register for the event here.
See you in Miami!
