To accommodate the many government agencies facing reduced budgets for travel and continuing education, Accela has lowered 2011 conference registration rates by $300 -- a savings of more than 30 percent compared with 2010.
"Accela understands the challenges facing many regional governments in the current economic climate," said Don Nanneman, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Accela. "But achieving efficiency and innovation in government processes has never been more critical. So we're doing our part to make it easier for our customers to reap the benefits that the User Conference delivers."
