NC TECH Special Event (Virtual)

Closing the Digital Divide

Governor Roy Cooper has proposed directing a substantial portion ($1.2 Billion) of the state’s federal COVID relief funds toward expanding broadband infrastructure and access; affordability; and digital literacy.  This unprecedented proposed investment addresses one of the key issues highlighted in NC TECH’s annual State of Technology Industry Report – that North Carolina ranks fairly well among the states in access to broadband, but not so well in adoption. 

This special virtual session will feature the Secretary of the NC Department of IT / State CIO and others who will brief Association members on the proposal and its goals.

Featured Guests



Jim Weaver
Secretary, NC Dept. of IT and State CIO

Lee Lilley
Governor's Director of NC Pandemic Recovery

Additional officials will include:

Jeff Sural
Director, Broadband Infrastructure Office


Nate Denny
Chief of Staff, NC Department of IT


Thursday, June 10
8:00 - 9:00 AM
