Secretary Gwadosky to Address Jay-Livermore Falls Rotary Club
Presentation to highlight e-Government services available to Maine Citizens

Church of the Nazarene, Fellowship Hall
Livermore Falls

Secretary of State Dan A. Gwadosky will speak to the Jay-Livermore Falls Rotary Club on Tuesday, April 24, 2001 at the Church of the Nazarene located in Livermore Falls.  Secretary Gwadosky’s topic will be Transitioning to e-Government.  His presentation will begin at approximately 12:30 p.m.

A recent survey shows that 56% of the adult U.S. population is now online and this group continues to grow at a phenomenal pace.  Government, like business, is scrambling to keep pace with technology in order to meet ever-increasing customer expectations while still maintaining traditional methods of service delivery.  The advent of the Internet offers a dramatic opportunity to transform how citizens interact with their government.

The State of Maine has developed an Internet portal to government services, known as InforME: the Information Resource of Maine, that continues to grow and develop at a rapid pace.  Secretary Gwadosky serves as the Chairman of the public board that guides InforME.

Through InforME state government is offering online vehicle re-registration, professional license renewals, hunting and fishing licenses and much more.  Secretary Gwadosky’s presentation on e-government will offer a provocative look into our global society and how it is changing citizen and business expectations of government services.  The presentation will also provide information on current and proposed e-government services in Maine.
