The Government IT Symposium provides 3 days of rich learning, networking, and engaging opportunities for over 1,000 IT leaders and professionals in government agencies and civic organizations. This year's symposium will focus on IT integration, innovation, and intelligence for the public good. This year's content will include information and special features designed to support the efforts of "Gov 2.0" - an exciting movement that is connecting citizens and government through the use of technology and data to foster a more open, collaborative, and efficient public sector.
Technology gives people an opportunity to engage with government in new and exciting ways. That is why it is important for IT professionals to build 21st century tools to connect citizens with the services that they need. The Government IT Symposium will be an exciting opportunity for the Midwest IT community to reflect on the milestones that we have achieved and to connect with others dedicated to charting the future of how government delivers these services. I encourage you to attend and look forward to seeing you at the 2015 Symposium.
