Sponsor Registration is now Open! View our Sponsorship page for more information



As technology professionals, we are tasked with laying out the road map to meet our organization’s goals — whether it is the latest software to improve business processes, hardware capable of supporting the demanding infrastructure needs or defensive strategies to protect assets from cyber threats. Like early explorers discovering new lands, we look ahead and navigate the safest path forward.

This event will be held Monday, October 21 – Thursday, October 24, 2019 at the beautiful DeSoto by Sotherly in the Historic District of Savannah, Georgia. Guest speaker Pat Bodin, author of the book Get in the Boat: A Journey to Relevance, will cover ways to gain a seat at the table with senior leadership prior to a technology emergency.

The second cohort of the Certified Government Chief Information Officer program will be completing their coursework and graduating at this conference. The Local Government Chief Information Officer program leadership curriculum will cover interpersonal communications and relationships. We have an exciting Geek Trak lined up as well. Dederick Scott will be discussing how to deploy a defensive network environment.
