Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) welcomed former President George W. Bush as the featured speaker at its annual Tyler Connect 2019 user conference in Dallas, Texas, on April 9.
Tyler’s Chief Marketing Officer Samantha Crosby led the conversation with former President Bush for a crowd of nearly 7,000 conference attendees at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas. Bush covered a variety of topics, including how he followed his parents into a life of public service, lessons learned and greatest achievements during his eight-year presidency, and his thoughts on how to be an effective leader. Additionally, he recognized the difficult work of public service and encouraged people to get involved in issues at the local government level.
“Having the opportunity for our clients to hear from former President Bush at this year’s Tyler Connect conference was a true honor,” said Lynn Moore, president and CEO of Tyler. “He understands many of the challenges our local government clients face every day, but he also recognizes the opportunities our clients can seize to better their communities. Our hope is that clients felt energized and well-equipped to effect change in their jurisdictions following this year’s Tyler Connect.”
Bush’s session was a conference highlight for the company’s record-setting number of clients who attended this year’s Connect. With 1,100 training classes over a three-day period, government and school clients had the opportunity to learn more about Tyler’s products and solutions, share best practices with their peers, and engage in discussions on industry topics such as citizen transparency, cybersecurity, citizen engagement, and data analysis.
The theme of this year’s Connect conference was “Fueling Connected Communities,” which builds on Tyler’s vision first introduced at Tyler Connect 2017. Lynn Moore and Chief Strategy Officer Bruce Graham presented on the developments Tyler has made in making Connected Communities a reality in an opening session on April 8.
Tyler Connect welcomed clients from all 50 states, Guam, Canada, Spain, and the Netherlands. The conference offered 66 educational tracks and 96 classrooms and featured 18 different Tyler product groups.
Next year’s Tyler Connect conference is scheduled for April 26-29, 2020, in Orlando, Florida.
