Smart Cities & Innovation Committee

The Smart Cities & Innovation Committee (SCIC) shares, manages and evaluates smart city and innovation policies and projects, potential partnerships and funding opportunities.

The SCIC Committee meets quarterly at 12 noon on the second Thursday of the month, typically following the Operations & Oversight (O&O) Committee meeting. The meetings are hybrid to include virtual (webinars) and in-person accommodations. Proper notice will be given when dates or location are modified.

Any questions or comments can be directed to the SCIC HRT Representative or Administrative Liaison.
