We are pleased to anchor our program this month with a presentation from Gerard Dach, President of the Government Blockchain Association, who is in town from DC & will share perspectives on:
*The State of the Blockchain Union*
Gerard (https://www.linkedin.com/in/gerard-dache-60254023/) will deliver a presentation describing how governments at all levels are responding to emerging technologies including Blockchain. This includes both local, state & national levels of governments. This presentation will focus on government business processes & not focus on cryptocurrencies. However, as it relates to government regulation & oversight, it will be addressed. Come & learn about the potential & actual use of this disruptive technology.
*Blockchain in Municipalities*
Andrew Nicklin, the Director of Data Practices @JohnsHopkins will share insights from his experience across the private, public, & academic sectors. He has worked with 100+ governments across the U.S. to leverage their data as a strategic asset in decision-making & has 20 years of technology leadership in NYC & NYS government.
