NACo to Host Exclusive Technology Summit

The National Association of Counties (NACo) will host a "by invitation only" summit in Chapel Hill, N.C., June 3-5 for 100 leaders in federal, state and local government to assess and frame the potential impact of technology in the next millennium.

The invitees, whom NACo is calling the "best and brightest and most influential leaders," were hand-picked by key government organizations, including the National League of Cities, the National Association of State Information Resource Executives, the International City and County Managers Association, Public Technology Inc., the National Governors Association and others.

The "Summit on Governance in a Technological Millennium" will look at the impact of technology on a range of public systems, including revenue streams, service delivery and the making of "virtual" communities.

"We will examine how these issues affect what governance is or will have to become to meet the demands and expectations of citizens in the future," said Win Lyday, NACo's director for information technology.
