Friday, June 28th, 2019

Mayor Hardie Davis, Jr. will join mayors and other leaders from local, state and federal government from around the nation this week at the U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM) Annual Meeting in Honolulu, HI.  Mayors will also be joined by private sector partners and top researchers dedicated to providing solutions to improve the quality of life in cities across the country.

During the meeting, Mayor Davis will moderate a session about Cyber Innovation and Technology, which will feature federal and private sector experts in cyber security. Davis serves with Austin Mayor Steve Adler as Co-Chair of the USCM Cyber Innovation and Technology Task Force and is a trusted resource on cyber security and technology for USCM member mayors.

“Augusta is leading the way in cyber, and the rest of the country is taking note,” said Mayor Davis. “It is exciting to highlight and share the great work happening in our local cyber sector.”

Mayor Davis joined the USCM in 2013. In addition to his work as Co-Chair of the Cyber Innovation and Technology Task Force, he serves as a member of the Advisory Board and as Co-Chair of the Vacant and Abandoned Properties Task Force.

“Engaging with organizations like USCM add value to our city and expose us to what works successfully in other communities,” Davis said. “There’s no need to reinvent the wheel. We have modeled proven platforms, such as CityWatch, based on innovation and technology introduced at USCM meetings.” Davis added.
