    Smarter Counties Summit: Technology Driving Innovation, Day 1

    “Innovation” and “technology.” Two words that may not typically come to mind when considering how counties are serving the underserved. However, when deployed together, innovation – whether it be developing new programs, retooling a system or process – and technology that connects the public with government or agencies with each other play an important part of any county’s efforts to reach out and to better serve vulnerable populations and the economically disadvantaged.

    During the Smarter Counties Summit, county leaders will explore the role that technology and innovation is playing to serve the underserved in our nation’s counties.

    Presented by NACo and the Public Technology Institute (PTI), Day 1 of the Summit will address:

    • Setting the Stage: Panel Discussion Led by NACo President Roy Brooks
    • Addressing Substance Use Disorder
    • Resilient Counties
    • The Last Mile: Connecting the Underserved
