Auvermann invited to White House

POSTED: July 18, 2013 11:59 p.m.

Dawson County soon will send one of its technological proponents to a conference in Washington, D.C.

Charlie Auvermann, executive director of the Development Authority of Dawson County, has been invited to attend the White House Champions of Change.

Auvermann, also an adjunct professor of the University of North Georgia’s Mike Cottrell School of Business, said he learned of the invitation July 8.

“We had been alerted to keep a couple of weeks open, so we knew something was up,” he said. “When they finally came back with an invitation, I was surprised.”

Auvermann, along with Heather Miner and Eric R. Parker, two other members of the Technology Association of Georgia, have been invited to participate in the gathering, which will feature groups of people, businesses and organizations that are working to empower and inspire members of their communities.

Auvermann will participate in a round-table discussion on engaging residents and communities in open government and civic participation in innovation. The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy will host the sessions.
