Blockchain. You’ve read about it, heard about it, and may have even talked about it. Now it’s time to discuss real-world applications of the technology. Co-hosted by the Government Blockchain Association, Government Blockchain Leadership Forum assembles early adopters from federal, state, and large municipalities to share pitfalls, outcomes, and surprises from their blockchain pilots. Designed with interactivity in mind, this program features unique panels of government presenters sharing their blockchain experiences.

Interact with leadership-level professionals with blockchain experience, like Avi Bender from the Department of Commerce, Craig Fischer from the Department of the Treasury, Debbie Bucci from the Office of National Coordinator for Health IT, and Jennifer O’Rourke from the Illinois Blockchain Initiative. Participate in break-out groups facilitated by the Government Blockchain Association. Hear from states and local governments, such as Chief Information Officer Peter Ambs from the City of Albuquerque and Dr. Joseph Williams from the State of Washington.
