The 8th Annual Conference will be held in Stillwater, OK at the Stillwater Community Center.

You may attend only one day if you wish but please sign up now so we can give accurate counts to conference planners. This conference is free. You do not have to be an OGITA member to attend. Sign up as many from your city, county, state, library, school, Police Department, Fire Department, etc., as you wish. All for free!! Lunch and evening reception are free as well. The location is the Community Center in Stillwater, Oklahoma. See the Conference page for a map. Please mark this calendar date to ensure a successful conference for attendees as well as vendors. The breakfast and lunch on Thursday of the conference will be sponsored and free to all attendees. You must have your conference wrist band for this lunch so be sure and sign up now. There will be many giveaways. Exhibitors should go to the exhibitor's page here.

The education / demonstration seminars and exhibit hall will be on day one of the conference. The second day will also have a free breakfast and will be a training and attendee sharing sessions and also on Friday will be a free lunch.

You may attend one day if that is all you can make it to but sign up now. Come attend the conference, see what OGITA has to offer, view the sessions, visit the exhibits, and then join OGITA if you like what you saw. Most Oklahoma government entities have already joined and sharing information at out monthly meetings as well as through our listserve email service. If you can only come for one day that is fine, but come! We know you will like what you see. There can be multiple attendees from each organization: IT directors, IT staff, Mayors, City Managers, Police Departments, Fire Departments, Public Utilities, City Clerks, County support staff, State support staff, library support staff, school staff, and other IT responsible parties, but each attendee needs to sign up individually. We have been asked by several City Managers as to how come they did not hear about this conference....so update your city, county, and state administration on this great free conference. The host hotel has discounted rooms so check the hotel page for information. Be sure to mention OGITA when reserving your hotel room.

The conference will have many presentations based on OGITA members' requests. If you have a vendor that wishes to present or needs a booth, please give them our conference web page address and get them signed up quick. All OGITA conferences in the past have sold out vendors space early as this is a much attended conference for vendors. Exposition Hall is limited to ensure a good vendor to attendee ratio. If you have signed up as an OGITA sponsor on our website, you will be given priority consideration. There will be many dedicated sessions for vendors/attendees interactions as well as extended exposition hall dedicated time Thursday morning. We will also have a Vendor-Attendee dedicated time so that each vendor will have every attendee listen to a short 2-5 minute introduction of their products and company. A rotation time if you will. This was started during our 2013 conference and vendors as well as attendees loved this round robin meet up.

Besides the vendor presentations there are some extra activities. There will be some social gatherings and receptions. But you must be signed up to attend any of these items.

Check the agenda when available for exact times. Please make note if you would like to attend those events by signing up below. We will notify attendees with more information after you sign up. Check back for any updates and more information but please sign up now so we can determine attendance. Presentations were selected based on discussions at OGITA meetings but we still have several openings for new material. Email in your suggestions to ogita(at)ogita.org If you think you have something interesting that your organization has done and wish to share, sign up to present a session on Friday. There will be giveaways during each session as well as during lunch and at the end of the conference. You must be present to win.
