RESTON, VA--(Marketwired - Jun 5, 2015) -

Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted government IT solutions provider, is proud to host the fifth annual Citizen Engagement Seminar. Researchers from the American Customer Satisfaction Index have found that citizen satisfaction with federal government services has dropped for a second consecutive year, only ranking above internet service providers. This interactive seminar looks to bring together public sector experts with government attendees to discuss how to improve agency-to-public engagement, streamline the delivery of services, and improve constituents' overall satisfaction with federal government services.

Through panel discussions, technology exhibits and networking opportunities, discussions will revolve around:

  • Leveraging social media to its full potential within agencies
  • Harnessing technology to improve citizen-based services
  • Current plans being implemented to improve how government engages with citizens
  • Best practices for handling open government

Thought leaders and public sector experts from both federal and state and local government will discuss the best practices and current strategies for improving citizen engagement and making it a top priority within the government. Linda Cureton, CEO of Muse Technologies and former NASA CIO and Driver of Social Media, and Bernetta Reese, Web and Project Manager for USDA, will be speaking on a panel, Engaging Citizens Across Platforms in Federal Government, discussing the current strategies and platforms they are implementing to increase engagement on all fronts and improve citizens' satisfaction rates.
