**NEW DATE** Regional Technology Work Group Agenda – Thursday, July 18, 2019, 1:00-3:30 pm


Please join us next week Thursday for our monthly Technology Work Group meeting as we continue revisions on the Regional Technology Governance Document and address additional questions related to Jetty from the EC.

Please note that this meeting is one week earlier than normal due to scheduling conflicts on our usual date.

The most recent draft of the Technology Governance with edits can be found at https://uasi-jtti.s3.us-west-2.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/26/2019/07/11085634/Southeast-Texas-Technology-Governance-20190711-IF.docx. In addition to reviewing submitted changes, we will also be continuing to discuss data privacy concerns. We will also be looking at the overall content and organization of the governance, as we have already completed section-by-section reviews.

If you or others in your organization know of any web-based systems for public information, please bring the names of those systems to this meeting.

The meeting will be held at:

Houston Emergency Center, Room 2081
5320 N. Shepherd
Houston, TX 77091

No formal RSVP is required, but if you are forwarding this invitation to someone else in your organization, please email their information to ian.feldman@houstontx.gov by the Wednesday before the meeting so they can be added to the security list for building access and also added to future email distributions.
