In just 13 days the SIPA User Conference will hit downtown Denver. This year, the conference features 3 main sessions: two engaging keynote speakers and a fast-paced Hot Topics Panel discussion. Combined, the sessions promise to be a candid reflection on being a government employee in an ever-changing, dynamic, and fluid workforce. We are eager to hear from our opening keynote, Amy Ford, CDOT's Chief of Advanced Mobility, who will bring us up to speed on the future of Colorado's transportation systems. Providing insight and entertainment, and the first professional speaker hired for the SIPA User Conference, Tim O'Shea is here during lunch to motivate and inspire with his humorous and entertaining style. His goal? Encouraging us to accept, not resist, change. Finally, we have three government leaders: Irv Halter, DOLA, Ann Terry, SDA, and Henry Sobanet, Governor's Office of State Planning and Budgeting, who will discuss the most pressing public sector challenges and opportunities. Read about these sessions and more, here.
Technology changes and governments change, but the SIPA User Conference remains a place for current information, networking, learning, and celebration. With sessions ranging from government technology to business technology, blockchain to chatbots, shared services to no-cost offerings, the 8th annual SIPA User Conference and Micro-Grant Award Ceremony is the place to be in downtown Denver on April 24th.
