Cost: $70-$110 (Price is membership dependent)
Location: Mastro’s Steakhouse in Washington, DC
The 21st Century Integrated Digital Experience Act was passed at the end of 2018 with overwhelming support. The Act calls upon government to deliver the kind of customer service that citizens have come to expect from the private sector. Critical government services such as healthcare, housing, tax advice, driver’s licenses will be available digitally to reduce the taxpayer burden and improve Federal websites using modern technology such as electronic signatures, digitals forms, and self-service options.
This AFFIRM briefing will bring together government thought-leaders to explore how customer service improvements are taming spiraling costs, earning the public trust, and building a more empowered government workforce.
