Georgia GMIS Fall 2021 Conference

Register NOW for the Fall Conference.

We invite you to attend the Georgia GMIS Rising from COVID 2021 Fall Conference at the Hyatt Regency Savannah!

The third cohort of the Certified Government Chief Information Officer program will conclude their coursework and receive certificates at the Tuesday night banquet.

Geek Trak is welcoming back trainer Dederick Scott. He will lead participants through Penetration Testing Techniques.

The Local Government Chief Information Officer program’s leadership curriculum will include an interactive session on Team and Group Dynamics as well as a session on Grant Writing. On Tuesday the technical focus will be on Coping with the Post-COVID Work Environment and Cybersecurity Event Prevention.

Georgia GMIS is pleased to once again offer The Good, The Bad and The Ugly Session on Monday afternoon.  You can also look forward to an Enrichment session on Wednesday morning titled Seeking Innovation which will look at how to utilize various types of innovation to benefit your organization and will result in creating a dashboard for tracking innovation projects.

Please note, CGCIO and Geek Trak courses will begin on Sunday.
