Hello everyone,

We'd like to invite folks to join us for the fifth annual Government Open
Source Conference (GOSCON, @goscon and http://goscon.org). GOSCON is an
ideal event for advocates of open government, transparency and open source
in government projects. The conference is targeted at Senior Information
Technology officers in the public sector;  Chief Information Officers and
other managers with a responsibility for Information Technology, along with
their senior strategic planning, architecture, procurement and legal staff.
Cross-state associations with common or shared business practices and
problems will want to attend and consider collaborative development
projects. The conference is non-profit and allows attendees the right space
to network and collaborate in a non-commercial setting.

We'll be welcoming speakers from Federal, State and Local levels such as
Sanjeev "Sonny" Bhagowalia (data.gov), Dugan Petty (CIO, State of Oregon)
and Portland's own Mayor Sam Adams. We'll also be showcasing key government
open source projects like CONNECT, which recently won the Wall Street
Journal Technology Innovation Award.

Our early bird registration discount of $195 for the two day event,
including meals, has been extended to October 18th. The conference hotel
discount of $120/night has been extended to the same date. You may also be
interested in the Open Government West Open Data Summit, directly preceding
the conference.


If you're not able to come to GOSCON, please help us by spreading the word
to folks who would benefit from the event. Thanks everyone and have a great





Leslie Hawthorn
