Secretary of Technology, Commonwealth of Virginia

"Virginia is 100% committed to enriching its citizen services through the innovative use of technology, so we are redoubling our efforts to accelerate the Commonwealth to new heights in digital government. The 18th annual COVITS is integral to our planning because it is one of the few times during the year when we will gather in one place to discuss strategies, possibilities, collaborations and lessons learned. The day and a half at COVITS is indeed time well-spent, and we encourage you to be an active part of the proceedings. We hope to see you there!"
