Rotella, Chief Technical Officer for Delphia Consulting, and a noted expert on web user experience and design and social media, has spoken at previous NAGW conferences, including as a keynote speaker in 2009. “With his high energy and inspiring enthusiasm, Joe is a favorite among NAGW conference attendees and we’re happy to have him return as one of our keynote speakers” said Ron Pringle, NAGW's President.

NAGW will be announcing more keynote speakers as well as some special guest speakers over the next few weeks leading up to the opening of registration on April 18.

2011 marks the 9th year of NAGW’s premier conference for local, state and federal government webmasters. “NAGW was started as a non-profit organization to specifically address the needs of local government webmasters. Our organization continues to grow and each year our conferences have gotten better; we think the 2011 conference will be our best yet.” said Pringle.
