PTI Recognizes Technology Leaders for Their Commitment to
Local Government Service
The 2012 Class of PTI Fellows recognizes three outstanding individuals who have committed their careers to service, leadership and the advancement of technology in city and county government.
A Fellow is recognized by the PTI Board of Directors as having played a major, positive role in furthering the use of technology for the public good — and who is willing to share his or her insight with local government officials.
"Each member of the 2012 Class of PTI Fellows has contributed more than 20 years to public service, and each serves as a model of commitment and professionalism in the government sector," said Dr. Alan Shark, Executive Director of PTI.
