Government Marketing University Announces Advisory Boards for Upcoming October GAIN 2023 Conference

GMarkU Plans to Reinspire GAIN 2023 to Meet the Needs of Government Marketers

April 27, 2023

Washington, D.C. (April 27, 2023) Government Marketing University – an innovative learning platform that applies a collaborative, community-based approach toward knowledge sharing and skills development for the public sector market – has announced the formation of new Advisory Boards composed of three expert groups that will use their broad industry knowledge to ensure GAIN 2023 continues its reign as the Premier Government Marketing Conference. The GAIN Conference  – The Voice of Government - Grow, Accelerate, Innovate, Network – will take place on October 17, 2023, at the Ritz Carlton in Tysons Corner, Virginia.

GAIN 2023 is reinspired with relevant knowledge, dynamic speakers, and an innovative atmosphere. Government Marketing University’s annual conference will support the government marketing community this year with training topics aligned with current trends and requirements, featuring industry and government thought leaders. 

“GAIN was created to provide insights to its attendees about the current and future technologies, challenges, and mandates facing the government today and in the near future,” said Lou Anne Brossman, Founder and President of Government Marketing University. “We believe the strongest way to program GAIN is by bringing in community leadership voices to help us build the program and topics that are most valuable to all of us who work across federal and state and local government. Who better to do this than this incredible brain trust across these three boards.” 

The new program committee consists of three boards, each with its own expert members:
