Gov Trends Virtual Summit

Reserve Your Spot Now

Government employees are no strangers to overflowing inboxes and crammed schedules. But even with demanding workloads, gov is accomplishing some pretty amazing things when it comes to innovation and problem-solving.

Save your spot now to join us and your public sector peers on Wednesday, November 8 for a free, all-day virtual summit. We'll cover some of the most creative ways gov is meeting its mission, but also where government is headed next and answer the question, "What does the future of government truly look like?"

  • It’s completely free and you’ll learn a lot.
  • Earn up to 5 continuing professional education (CPE) credits in specialized knowledge.
  • Unlike in-person events, you can come and go as you please without ever leaving your office chair!
