SISLT is sponsoring a presentation by Ron Green, owner of GovVentures Consulting. A former educator, Mr. Green worked for Hallmark as an editor and later became the founder of Hallmark Card’s Creative University program (Creative U). He championed initiatives to improve Hallmark’s technology capabilities in digital design, multimedia animation, interactive web development, 3D design and rapid prototyping.

The goals of the center are:
