Registration for Executive Seminar 2023 is now open!

Disruption is our new normal in state technology and the world at large. Technology can either help us respond to disruption or can serve as a disruptive force itself. 

The 2023 Executive Seminar will focus on change and innovation in Washington’s public sector IT and will bring together industry experts and government technology leaders to discuss the latest developments and trends in the field. 

We are opening registration earlier this year so you can block out the time on your busy calendar, commit staff resources and provide for the event in your budget.

Attendees will hear from keynote speakers, engage in panel discussions, and network with peers from throughout the state. The conference will provide a platform for participants to learn about innovative leadership strategies and techniques for embracing change, leading through the era of disruption and using technology to drive business outcomes. Topics of discussion will include digital transformation, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, and other potentially disruptive technologies.

This event will be an opportunity for professionals to gain valuable insights, share their experiences, and connect with others who are passionate about driving progress and innovation in our ever-changing world.
