We Need Your Opinion for the ASPRS Annual Conference RE-design!
The ASPRS Annual Conferences are undergoing a RE-design, RE-imagination period and a RE-thought process to better represent YOU. And to begin, we need your input.
To begin the process, we knew there were elements that must be included in a new conference theme. We wanted to represent all areas of ASPRS, to encompass the broadest terms for our industry, and to use "Technology" since...that's what this industry represents at its core.
The following are the three new tag lines that have been developed for the ASPRS Annual Conferences. On the ASPRS.org homepage, please cast your vote for your favorite tag line!
