Virginia to Host National Y2K Summit

Virginia's Century Date Change Initiative (CDCI) project will host a national summit Dec. 5-7 on innovative business practices that emerged from efforts to fight the Year 2000 computer date glitch.

The summit, "Charting New Directions for a New Millennium: Y2K Templates," will feature nationally recognized speakers and enable information technology professionals to discuss and share new or experimental initiatives that changed business practices as a result of Year 2000 projects.

"Year 2000 has made us realize that we do not operate in a vacuum, but rather exist in a series of interconnective channels, partnering with citizens, governments and businesses to successfully provide services and fulfill our responsibilities," said Bette Dillehay, director of the CDCI Project office.

Information on the summit is available on the CDCI Web site at www.cdci.state.va.us.

Also, Virginia Gov. James Gilmore will host the final meeting of his Commission on Information Technology on Dec. 9 at Old Dominion University in Norfolk. Participants will examine the role of government in the information economy. More information is available at www.sotech.state.va.us.
