2015 has been an amazing year. In 2009, we had 20,000 GovLoop members. Today, I’m proud to say that number is over 250,000 members. And we are serving you in bigger and better ways.
In April, we launched GovLoop Academy with more free on-demand training courses. And we’ve grown our staff to provide more free resources and online trainings. In fact, we grew so much that we had to move to a new office.
Here are some of my favorite highlights of what GovLoop’s accomplished.
21 guides: We covered a huge variety of topics, (like GIS tech, citizen engagement and cybersecurity) and highlighted hundreds of case studies.
34 GovLoop Academy courses: Yes, we just launched GovLoop Academy. Yes, there are already 34 on-demand courses you can take.
