The Government 2.5 conference aims to bring various participants and stakeholders within all aspects of government at the local, state and federal levels together to learn how best to apply social media toward improving government services and allowing the public to participant in policy debate and the spending of tax dollars.

This conference will be focused on providing existing concrete examples from both within government and private industry that can be applied within your own agency or business. We will be setting a tone within this conference for new solutions and ideas to take shape. An atmosphere for creativity and discussion is first and foremost, and attendee participation will both be fostered and encouraged.

If you have an interest in making government more efficient through applied information technology and social media, then this conference is for you.

Something Different In The Typical Conference Format

The conference will also include two evening Town Hall meetings presented and produced by Cat-Strat | Productions.

Monday Night – This Town Hall will explore Social Media’s impact on Government, Politics and The Election Process.

Tuesday Night – This Town Hall will explore how Social Media is impacting public debate in the context of key policy discussions such as health care reform.

The Town Halls will be highly spirited, interactive and wrapped in a social context. Input and ideas will be documented and channeled to policy makers and public officials after the conference.
