Taking Our Show on the Road

Last week, we unveiled our Côte d’Ivoire Travel with Purpose marketing effort during the American Public Human Services Association (APHSA) ISM (IT Solutions Management) Conference in Seattle. ISM is the largest and most comprehensive IT health/human services conference in the nation, and brings together state and local IT leaders, federal partners, and private sector industry experts all working toward solutions to support health and human services programs.  

We met some terrific people and had a great time learning about the variety of ways folks are making a difference in their communities and abroad. 

Many were interested in the tour, and we’d like to thank those who stopped by to enter our drawing to win $500 off the September trip (registration fee value) and a Tom Bihn travel day pack. 

Our grand prize winner (registration fee plus backpack) is Cindy Hull, Program Development Specialist for the Missouri Department of Social Services Children’s Division. For those of you who don’t know about Tom Bihn bags, the company is based in Seattle and feature a variety of rugged and attractive bags for work and travel. Our own Brian Kerr, Senior Consultant, introduced us to Tom Bihn several years ago, and we’ve been fans ever since.

Our next stop is the Washington State Government Lean Transformation Conference in Tacoma, November 5 & 6. If you’re attending, stop by our booth to say hello (and enter for your chance to win a prize)!
