63 People on GovLoop You Should Know

Originally posted to the ChatterBachs blog: 63 people on GovLoop you should know

I have selected 63 people on GovLoop you should know. All are engaged to some extent on GovLoop, the Social Network for Government. They are from both the public and private sectors, on the state, local, and federal levels. Most are in the United States but not all. Some were chosen for this list due solely to what they give to the blogs, forums, and/or groups on GovLoop, while for others it was because of a combination of their role and their contributions to that community. I did not select any who from my vantage point are currently “inactive” on GovLoop; and, believe me, there are a number of people who I wish would lend from their experiences and wisdom on an ongoing basis. I will also add that some who are on this list I have interacted with on Twitter, have met in person, or have talked with on the phone. These experiences give additional light to their qualifications, insights, and/or commitment to government. As a final disclaimer, it should be noted that this list is my personal list; it is based on my interactions, interests, and activities. It should in no way be construed that these are the top 63 people you should know or the only 63 people should know on GovLoop. Your list might be very different. In fact, if you’re already on GovLoop, you may want to put together your own list. If you’re not on GovLoop presently, get connected; it’s a community that has a lot to offer. Oh, and then put together your list! The list below is in alphabetical order by last name and then is followed by their current title and department, agency, or organization (taken directly from their GovLoop profiles and in their own words). Clicking on their name will take you to their GovLoop profile.
