In a post-pandemic world, collaborative meetings scratch the surface of what is possible - government agencies are using Zoom for mission-critical communications. The opportunities for increased utilization are endless, from effective training to command and control emergency response. Judicial, corrections and public safety applications are increasing at a rapid pace. Many governments are continuing to improve citizen engagement and create more efficient services. This panel discussion will include industry experts from careers of dedicated public service with the FGDLA and various government leadership positions.
