ELGL is proud to partner with Code for America on planning for the 2019 #CfASummit to make it the best Code for America Summit yet. To get started, we want ELGL members to submit proposals to speak at the big event on May 29-31 in Oakland, CA. Here’s the call for speakers request from CfA:
We’re looking for proposals that will connect with your peers in government and technology and focus on four big problems: digital service delivery with users at the center, making sense of disruptive technology, focusing on delivery with policy and technology at the table, and shaping the technology landscape for better outcomes for everyone.
The deadline to submit your session idea is January 11, 2019.
To help you think about your submissions, here’s an early preview of our three Summit tracks:
- Digital Delivery: The process, practices and tools required by cross-disciplinary teams across government and beyond, to deliver digital services meeting user needs.
- Civic Innovation: How do we improve and make use of new ways of engaging with and meeting the expectations of citizens? How have disruptive, early-stage technologies been used to meet user needs? How do we balance privacy and meeting user needs when dealing with data?
- GovOps: How do we transform the processes, people and culture working in and around government? What are the principles and practices that are making progress in dealing with operational issues such as procurement, security, talent, and culture?
Sessions from our 2018 Summit include:
- Keeping Users at the Forefront While Scaling Services
