Winter #MACoCon Titles Are Here! See What’s in the Works for “Time to Reboot: Tomorrow’s Tech Today”

MACo’s Winter Conference, “Time to Reboot: Tomorrow’s Tech Today,” on Dec 8-10, 2021, will bring together more than 600 leaders in the private and public sectors to discuss how to prepare for the changes on the horizon in Maryland. See the list of educational session titles below.

This conference features 3 days of educational sessions, events, and meetings along with a 60-booth tradeshow of vendors offering solutions for local governments, non profits, and commercial organizations. The theme is “Time to Reboot: Tomorrow’s Tech Today.” Rapidly advancing technology has changed government service delivery. With remote work, virtual learning, ransomware, data security, and online meetings emerging as more widespread options – and in some cases, obstacles – this conference will explore how county governments are or should be approaching technology, and what tools can help them provide state-of-the-art services for Maryland residents.
