2007 Annual Report


Disseminating Knowledge


Disseminating Knowledge

A core aspect of CTG’s mission is to take an active role in the community of researchers and managers engaged in building and sharing knowledge about information technology (IT) innovation in government. We accomplish this, in part, through our participation in local, national, and international academic and professional conferences. In addition, staff are involved in workshops, panels, and advisory boards at all levels of government and internationally to explore and advise on key issues such as intergovernmental relations, electronic records management, project management, and technology and public policy.

The following is a list of the venues where staff participated as speakers or presented research papers and project findings in 2007, along with the advisory and editorial boards and study panels on which CTG representatives served.

Participants came together to share the latest findings in the theory and practice of Electronic Governance and to discuss their specific experiences and concerns.
