Eric Meyer, author and internationally acclaimed expert in web standards, CSS and HTML, will deliver the opening keynote at the National Association of Government Webmasters (NAGW) 2009 National Conference. Meyer, author of numerous web development books, including Cascading Style Sheets: The Definitive Guide, Eric Meyer on CSS and the CSS2.0 Programmer’s Reference, will also teach a hands-on, intermediate level, half-day pre-conference course as well as host a special two-hour general session.
NAGW President, Ron Pringle explained, “The NAGW National Conference has always been the most affordable education available to local government webmasters. This year, we offer training from an expert while maintaining that affordability.” Referring to the pre-conference session, Pringle added, “Where else can you sit in a room for four hours, for under $200, and learn CSS from the person who, literally, wrote the book?”
Now in its seventh year, NAGW’s National Conference attracts web professionals from all levels of government, representing cities, counties, and states across the country. Attendees will convene at Moody Gardens Hotel in Galveston, TX from September 16 through 18, with pre-conference sessions on September 15. Last year, session topics included “Emergency Management on the Web”, “Citizen Focused Web Design”, “Government Websites on a Zero-Dollar Budget”, and many application-specific sessions, offering attendees the opportunity to improve their skills, learn new technologies, and share e-government solutions.
Pringle noted, “If your job involves government websites, you won’t find a more cost effective way to get the information you need to do your job. NAGW’s Board prides itself in offering a high quality, low cost conference. The 2009 National Conference, with headliner Eric Meyer, will be no exception.”
