Thank you to Nick Scheidegger and the City & County of Denver, CO for hosting the 18th ANNUAL CONFERENCE
At the conference we Discovered Our Peak!
A mountain. Some see it as an obstacle, to others a challenge. In Denver we used the mountain as metaphor and took our own virtual climb to the peak.
We assessed our provisions, making sure we have the tools needed for our contact centers. We met up with fellow climbers, forge friendships and shared stories and insights along the way. We were inspired at the summit through incredible speakers and collaborative discussions. The best view comes after the hardest climb.
Thank you for taking this journey with us up the mountain. We hope you enjoyed the climb!
Thank you to Liz Henley and Chattanooga, TN for hosting the 2017 ANNUAL CONFERENCE
The FUTURE is NOW…Get CONNECTED
Thank you for joining us and getting connected at the 2017 AGCCP “Unconference!” The 2017 conference was a mixture of tradition with speakers, sponsors and vendors but mainly a participant-driven format which allowed you to have thought-provoking discussions with other government contact center professionals about the issues that matter to you most.
