At a time when frustration toward government seems to be at an all-time high, it’s refreshing to take note of those who are truly transforming the way government works for the better. Government and citizen-led initiatives across Illinois are pioneering new ways to deliver better government services at a lower cost.
Join us on Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2016, for the 2016 Transform Illinois Awards luncheon, where we will present our second annual Transformer Awards to our Local Government, State Government and Citizen Transformers.
The event will feature a keynote address by Christopher R. Berry, associate professor in the Harris School, director of the Center for Municipal Finance and faculty director of the Master of Science Program in Computational Analysis and Public Policy, at University of Chicago; an awards presentation; and panel discussion on how our awardees successfully achieved greater efficiency through collaboration and innovation. They’ll also discuss why it’s so important, now more than ever, to promote and support local government efficiency efforts.
