Summit on Financial Leadership 2018

September 20-21, 2018 | USA

Governing’s Summit on Financial Leadership is an invitation-only gathering of senior executives from state and local government: Participants include finance officials and elected leaders along with key industry experts. Each year, Governing convenes to address priorities and challenges in public finance as well as emerging policy issues impacting states, cities, and counties, and we explore those issues in the larger context of evolving social, political and economic trends.

At their April meeting, Council members discussed whether Canada’s competition policy toolkit is sufficient to address new forms of market power that may arise in the digital economy. Governments worldwide are wrestling with public concerns about the perceived power and influence of “Big Tech” companies like Google, Facebook and Amazon that provide digital platforms for searching, shopping and social media and collect extensive datasets about users’ online activities. In the face of populist appeals for a revamp of antitrust rules and pressure to directly regulate digital platforms, the consensus of the Council was that Canada’s competition law continues to provide a robust framework for confronting new forms of anticompetitive behaviour that may arise in the digital economy. However, Council members cautioned that competition law has limits.

Government Customer Experience & Engagement Summit

June 22, 2022 | USA

For almost three decades, governments at all levels have been working to improve the way they deliver services and benefits and engage with their customers---both internal and external. Efforts from past administrations focused on modernizing infrastructures and improving digital delivery, as well as gathering feedback from the public on how well the services were delivered. The Biden Administration has made customer experience one of its three main management goals and has issued an executive order that requires specific actions from the lead agencies, the High Impact Service Providers (HISPs). These new directives reawakened the un-met requirements in the 21st Century Integrated Digital Experiences Act (IDEA), signed into law December 2018, and set the agenda for agencies to improve performance and build trust with their customers. At this event, experts from government and industry will share some of the approaches that have been successful and explore how technology can help expand the digital delivery of services and improve the trust customers have in those services.
