State and local governments are on the front lines of delivering an economic recovery from the pandemic. The pressure is on to act quickly and decisively. Technology will play a critical role in getting financial help to people who need it, and it’s also an important part of helping government organizations improve accountability, transparency and equity.

Join us June 15 at 11 PT/2 ET as we sit down with former Gov. Martin O’Malley for an in-depth conversation on the role technology will play in helping cities and states come back from the pandemic recession faster, stronger and more equitably.

In this special live virtual event, Gov. O’Malley will discuss:

  • What states and localities should consider as they look to rebound
  • How agencies can get smarter about disbursing and overseeing benefits and services to those residents in need
  • How technology can be leveraged to provide greater transparency and avoid inequity.
  • Creative strategies for seizing this once-in-a-generation opportunity to build out technology infrastructure that can meet the digital  expectations of constituents
