This May, Dynamic Quest made its presence known at NCLGISA’s spring conference —that’s the North Carolina Local Government Information Systems Association— as one of 75 vendors supporting the conference and its goals of networking and education. If you were in attendance, you saw DQ’s Darren Barnes across from the well-lit and Dell-equipped police cruiser on display. This was one of many sights at the spring event, and the fall conference is set to rival the happenings in May.
Dynamic Quest, who has partnered with the likes of Dell, Microsoft, and Cisco, will again be represented at NCLGISA this October 21-23 in Winston-Salem. DQ has a rich history of community involvement, supporting local businesses, governments, and groups since its establishment at the turn of the millennium. Recognized as one of the 50 Most Promising IT Services Companies of 2014 by CIO Review, Dynamic Quest aims to reach many new NCLGISA members in 2015. If you are attending the symposium please stop by and see us at booth #68 for some great show specials and amazing door prizes!
