NAGW Announces 2014 National Conference Keynote Speakers
The National Association of Government Web Professionals (NAGW) is pleased to announce Ethan Marcotte, Cathilea Robinett and Kristina Halvorson as keynote speakers for NAGW's 2014 National Conference in St. Paul, Minnesota—September 9–12, 2014.
Ethan Marcotte is an independent designer/developer who is passionate about beautiful design, elegant code, and the intersection of the two. Over the years his clientele has included People Magazine, New York Magazine, the Sundance Film Festival, The Boston Globe, and the W3C. Ethan coined the term “responsive web design” to describe a new way of designing for the ever-changing Web and, if given the chance, will natter on excitedly about it—he even went so far as to write a book on the topic.
Cathilea Robinett is Executive Vice President of e.Republic, the parent company for Governing, Government Technology, Public CIO, Emergency Management and Converge magazines. With over 20 years experience in public sector media, she oversees magazines, Websites, conferences and events, as well as the Center for Digital Government and Center for Digital Education. Prior to this she was Executive Director of both the Center for Digital Government and Center for Digital Education, two of the company’s national research and advisory groups, where she successfully expanded operations in research, market intelligence, events and innovative media. Robinett was responsible for the development and management of the Center’s widely cited Digital States Survey and related programs.
