Special Districts Summit - West

May 30, 2019
Anaheim, CA


Smarter, Faster and Safer is the theme for the 2019 Special Districts program and events. Districts across the US are focused on innovation, data analytics, customer service, process improvement, technology upgrades and other areas that will help them improve efficiency, effectiveness and service delivery while enhancing physical and cyber security.

Special districts serve vital community needs including water, sanitation, parks, roads, transportation, hospitals, public safety and more. Now in its third year, the Special Districts Program – a joint initiative between AT&T and Government Technology magazine - is designed to enable the tens of thousands of special districts to connect, share and learn from one another. In particular, the special districts summits provide an in-person opportunity for special districts to hear inspirational keynotes, leadership discussions and timely topics to help advance their missions as well as network with other districts from their region. Drawing from the recommendations of national and regional advisory boards, the agenda will deliver relevant and actionable content for all regional participants.

Topics will include:

  • Cybersecurity
  • The Internet of Things
  • Driving Efficiency to Stretch the Budget
  • The Bits and Bytes of Data
  • Communication and Leadership
  • Recruitment and Retention
  • Resilient Infrastructure
  • And more…

With content designed for both the business and technology sides of the organization, each event will focus on how special districts can seize the opportunities that 21st century management and new technologies create to transform the way special districts operate and how they can build a more customer-focused, efficient and effective organization for both residents and businesses.
