LGov.org is a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to improving the effectiveness of local government information technology services through the establishment of an active, mutually supportive Internet community of Local Government IT professionals.

LGov.org is the central clearinghouse to share ideas and information with your local government IT peers with the kind of immediacy and multidisciplinary impact that can only be achieved in a cyber environment!

LGov.org is open to all local government professionals who understand the critical need to share IT practices, products, ideas and services not only for their own mutual benefit, but for the public they serve.
