Register for the August 13th meeting.

Please join us at the August meeting where Christopher Whitaker will present on the growing civic tech movement in Chicago, the nation and the world. This will be a great extension of our open gov, open data, and Smart Chicago meetings from earlier this year. Christopher and our own Adam Hecktman will highlight some of the local initiatives in civic tech and civic engagement.

He utilizes his experience in government and community organizing to advance civic innovation in Chicago. Whitaker also serves as the Midwest Brigade Coordinator for Code for America, supporting civic innovation across the Midwest. He has been honored as a White House Champion of Change for Civic Hacking. He is a graduate of DePaul University (MPA) and Sam Houston State University (BA, Political Science). Previously, Whitaker served with the US Army in Iraq as a mechanized infantryman.
