NWGIS 2017 Save The Date

Fri, 10/28/2016 - 12:11pm -- bbutterfield

We will offer a broad slate of preconference workshops and we will have informative and entertaining speakers. As usual, the concurrent sessions at the 2017 NWGIS will provide a great opportunity to see and hear about projects and work being done by your fellow GIS professionals from across the Pacific Northwest. Then there is the time to just chat, meet new people, and catch up with past colleagues. Conference planning has already started and we want your ideas, suggestions, and other input. Use the Contact Us link at https://www.nwgis.org/contact to send an email to the conference planning committee.

The Boise Convention Center (https://boisecentre.com) is newly expanded and remodeled and is located in downtown Boise. It will be a great venue for our event, and is close to restaurants, galleries, museums and the Boise River. Our warm days and cool evening early fall days should be perfect for enjoying Boise's vibrant downtown. Mark your calendars now and we will see you next fall.
