A message from our Keynote Speaker

We are approaching the time for the annual Tennessee Digital Government Summit and I would like to personally invite you to share in this experience with us. Our goal this year is to increase the collaboration between government business leaders, government IT professionals and private industry experts. I sincerely hope that you will be able to attend and I look forward to seeing you there. I know this year’s event will be the best yet!
