TAG Public Sector Presents:
How Local Government is Leveraging Technology to Build Smarter Communities
ATLANTA (March 22, 2016) – The Technology Association of Georgia’s Public Sector Society announce a luncheon panelist discussion on how Local Government is Leveraging Technology to Build Smarter Communities at the Johns Creek Environmental Campus on March 31, 2016.
For too long local government has believed that technology solutions were out of their reach. Traditional solutions were provided as expensive custom software that was non-flexible and after a few years obsolete to current processes. Smaller county or municipal jurisdictions didn’t even begin the search for solutions.
The tide is now changing for local government. A new crop of suppliers and innovators are using the technology that we use in everyday life and incorporating them for specific governmental functions. This includes low cost cloud based and mobile app based solutions.
Join TAG Public sector for an exciting expert panel consisting of Richard Barron, Director of Registration and Elections at Fulton county; Chris Floore, Assistant to the County Manager for Public Affairs at Macon-Bibb County; and Sallie Wright, CIO at Fulton County Government.
Johns Creek Environmental Campus is located on 8100 Holcomb Bridge Road, Alpharetta, GA 30022.The evening event will take place on Thursday, March 31st from 11:30am-1:00pm.
