With the proliferation of smart devices (smartphones, tablet devices), local governments are developing applications that make government services and information more accessible and government more responsive to the public.

PTI is hosting this half-day, web-based Virtual Summit on Apps for Local Government that will look at the opportunities that mobile apps can provide, as well as explore the policy and management implications of creating and implementing these apps.

This exciting web event will begin with an overview of why local governments are moving into the rapidly changing waters of mobile apps. Then, three local governments – Boston, MA, Miami-Dade County, FL, and New York, NY will share their experiences with mobile apps.

The entire educational event is presented free of charge and is designed for anyone interested in the development or implementation of apps for local government. Local officials can attend the entire meeting or sign-on for just the portions that are of interest.
