Prepping for the World of Tomorrow: Automation in Local Government

Please join the Chicago Metro Chapter for an enriching networking luncheon!  The world is moving faster and faster in the age of technology.  Every day we hear more and more about automation in workforce and how it will revolutionize the way people do business and upend entire industries. But what about government?  Government gets a bad reputation for being slow and inefficient, how can local governments begin to counter this view and show that government can work efficiently?  Enter automation for local governments.  

This session will discuss the reasons local government leaders should be looking to automate including efficiency, accuracy, and best practice leadership.  You will learn the benefits of automation to taxpayers and municipal staff and learn the various ways to automate processes within your organization.  By the end of the session you will understand how easy it can be to take advantage of automation opportunities that may not have been considered before.

Learning Objectives - Participants completing this session will be able to: 
Gain an understanding of what automaton is doing in the world and why it is important.
2. Learn the ways to automate finances in their organizations.
3. Understand the benefits of automation for both local government staff and taxpayers.
