DGS is pleased to announce its new Board of Directors for 2014-2016. The newly global DGS is in an important phase of its evolution. Transition from a regional society to a global one is almost fully complete; we are now established legally as the DGS and are in the process of updating materials used to communicate about the society. Our newly elected Board reflects evidence of our collective commitment as a society to this new global focus with two members based at Universities outside of North America. The transition will continue over the next few years.
In October 2013, the Digital Government Society of North America became the Digital Government Society (DGS), reflecting the global nature of digital government research, practice, and community. President of DGS John Carlo Bertot indicated that, “The name change marks an exciting achievement for DGS and digital government research. By opening the Society, we are expanding its reach and engaging scholars and practitioners from around the world.” Past President Hans Jochen Scholl said, “This will have a positive effect on digital government research and practice in North America.
