Call for Speaker Abstracts

Your team works hard every day to drive impact in your agency. Why not show off that hard work? Share your successes, lessons learned, best practices, and tips with hundreds of OpenGov users across the nation's cities, counties, state agencies, school districts, and more!

Presenting at Transform will not only save you $500 off the full-cost price of your conference admission, but it will also help justify your trip and give you an opportunity to share your expertise. Want to get started? Here's what you need to do:


    Grab your team for a brainstorm, then submit your favorite ideas to us. All you need to do is fill out the quick submission form below. Don’t worry, you don’t need your full presentation ready at this point—we just want to hear your ideas.


    Once abstract submissions close, we will review all proposals for consideration. All authors will be notified if their abstract is approved.


    Once your proposal is accepted, you’ll need to register for Transform. As a thank you for sharing your story, we’ll give you a code to receive $500 off the full-price conference rate! This offer is valid for single-speaker registrations only and cannot be used in conjunction with any other discounts. Presenters are responsible for their own registration, travel, and hotel costs.


    After your abstract is selected and you’re registered for the conference, our OpenGov team will help you finalize your presentation. Presentations will vary from 30-45 minutes, followed by time for audience questions.

Have a question about your abstract? Contact Megan Olson, OpenGov content marketing manager, at molson@opengov.com.
