If you are a federal CTO or CIO or other IT professional please read on for information on a workshop coordinated by the Partnership for Public Service.
First, a word about the Partnership, from their website:
The Partnership for Public Service is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that works to revitalize our federal government by inspiring a new generation to serve and by transforming the way government works.
We envision a dynamic and innovative federal government that effectively serves the American people.
The Partnership for Public Service works to revitalize our federal government by inspiring a new generation to serve and by transforming the way government works.
Our Guiding Principles
- We believe that good government starts with good people.
- We live by our name of Partnership – working with others whenever possible.
- We exist not to do the job of government, but to help government do its job better.
- We work to improve OUR government, not THE government, focusing on goals that transcend ideology and politics.
What We Do
- Raise awareness and improve public attitudes about government service
- Promote government service through outreach to college campuses and job seekers
- Provide hands-on assistance to federal agencies to improve their operations
- Advocate for needed legislation and regulatory reforms to strengthen the civil service
- Generate thought-provoking research on, and effective responses to, the workforce challenges facing the federal government
Now more on the workshop:
Next Wednesday, 14 March 2012, the Partnership will be hosting a workshop entitled “Making Smart Cuts: Leveraging IT to Improve Government During A Time of Austerity”. This workshop will be a great opportunity for many federal CIOs, CTOs, and their staff to engage in dialogue and interact directly with Steve VanRoekel, CIO of the US Government, and Dr. Peter Levin, CTO of the US Department of Veterans Affairs.
This is for federal IT professionals only. Please register at:http://pps.convio.net/site/Calendar?view=Detail&id=100324.
