After the Luncheon: WTF is Strategy
and Why Should You Care?
On Thursday, October 24, David Deaton from Deaton Group, LLC joined the SVTC to discuss the
3 different types of strategic disciplines, how to build a strategy that leverages all 3, and how to do that to build a better organization.
Digital Government Institute is privileged to work with some of the best and brightest government leaders. We are especially excited about the upcoming 12th annual Cyber Security Conference - scheduled for November 14 - an event to highlight women in Cybersecurity. These Cyber Leaders will share their capabilities, experiences, lessons learned and accomplishments, to include how they are advancing both their agencys' missions and their own careers. DGI is finalizing the agenda and plans to have top-level cybersecurity leaders from organizations such as USPS, FBI, HHS, DHS, Montgomery County, WMATA and ZeroFox on the program.
The complete conference schedule will be announced soon.

2019 Challenge: CITY SHAPER
What if you could build a better world? Where would you begin?
More than ever, we must come together to innovate and solve problems. In FIRST
®, you are part of a thriving community brimming with inspiration, creativity, and hope for a stronger, more sustainable future-one that's built better together. You have the power to help the cities, towns, and places you call home reach new heights. With the support of the FIRST community, this is your opportunity to lead our future forward-and up.
FIRST LEGO League challenges kids to think like scientists and engineers. During the CITY SHAPER season, teams will choose and solve a real-world problem in the Innovation Project. They will also build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS technology to solve a set of missions in the Robot Game. Throughout their experience, teams will operate under the
FIRST signature set of Core Values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism.
Each year, the Shenandoah Valley Technology Council sponsors three new
FIRST LEGO League (FLL) teams from the Shenandoah Valley. Approximately half of the start-up cost of a new team is reimbursed, up to $350.
Teams must be located in the footprint of the Shenandoah Valley Technology Council's area of operation and intend to participate in the FLL competition within one year of receiving the grant. This grant can be used towards any equipment required for competition in
FIRST LEGO League, including one or more LEGO robotics kits, a competition practice table, and an FLL field setup kit.
