GIS Division Meeting
The GIS Division invites all interested members to join us in our monthly meeting on the second Monday of every month at 4:00PM. The GIS Division has a number of initiatives – Education Outreach, GIS Day, One Day GIS Sessions, etc. and volunteers are needed to make things happen. We need leaders and practitioners who are passionate about GIS and are looking to making a difference and contributing to this field of interest. If you are a practicing GIS professional seeking to expand and broaden your skills, knowledge, network, and more, join us. Please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) . Once request is received a meeting link will follow.
