re:public 2018

Nov 11 - 13, 2018
Palm Springs, CA


Each year, the Center for Digital Government convenes a hand-selected group of visionaries, thought-leaders and doers of deeds. This is an opportunity for attendees to discuss the great opportunities available in this digital age, discard old mindsets and learn new ways to confront and overcome challenges. It is time for re:public 2018.

re:public brings together some of today’s finest leaders in public service around the great lessons of history and the great ideas of today – all with a view to creating a future worthy of our heritage and next generation. The group of leaders who attend this invitation-only event reflects a belief that the answer is in the room if the right people are in it.

re:public is the Center’s flagship leadership retreat. It is a nonpartisan event with the aim of kindling the best of public stewardship. Don’t miss it!


“And now for something completely different . . .”

Attendees of a certain age may remember the Monty Python movie of the same name almost a half century ago. The catchphrase, “And now for something completely different . . .” actually originated earnestly enough as a transition between otherwise jarring scenes.

Amid today’s steady stream of jarring scenes, we intend “something completely different” as aspirational – bringing listening, understanding and compromise to our civic life, renewing the ties that bind us together, pursuing synergies between public service and entrepreneurship and bringing equity and inclusion to imagining a preferred future for our communities and country.

Welcome to re:public 2018 – a time and place for people who choose to lead.
