Digital Transformation Nation: Modernizing IT to Improve Government 

Join the U.S. Chamber Technology Engagement Center (C_TEC) for a digital transformation event with the Escondido Chamber of Commerce from 1:15-3:30pm PT on Thursday, August 4

The event brings together private sector, government, and policy leaders to address the challenges and opportunities of digitally transforming how governments provide services to their citizens at levels of government.

The digital transformation event will highlight trends in the information technology sector and focus on current funding that can be utilized at the state and local levels to help government modernize.
