MISAC’s Northern Chapter Members Experience Google’s Culture of Innovation On-Site at the Googleplex

This spring, MISAC members from the Northern California chapter gathered at Google’s Executive Briefing Center to discuss innovation, cloud storage, security and Google Apps for Government. The day-long informational meeting included several presentations, lunch in the Portal restaurant, a tour of the Googleplex and—of course—a chapter meeting.

 

“As the chapter continues to look toward the future,” says Kim Murray, Information Services Coordinator for the City of Healdsburg, “it is the goal of its officers to provide additional opportunities for members to innovate, collaborate and think outside the box. Our trip to Google was our first step in meeting this goal.”

 

Members were greeted by the Google team and a custom MISAC marquee upon arrival to the Executive Briefing Center, then kicked off the meeting with a warm welcome from chapter president Nathaniel Roush, IT Manager of Public Safety of Hayward. Participants had an exclusive opportunity to ask questions of Google’s experts, including security engineers, network engineers and G-suite staff, and to discuss hot topics like CJIS compliance, document retention and staff collaboration. With more than thirty members in attendance, there were plenty of opportunities for networking, conversing, visiting the famous Google Portal and playing with Legos, a tool often used by Googlers to create new and innovative products.

 

After a full day of all things Google, the meeting concluded with a tour of the Googleplex and several photo-ops.
