Registration for the 2016 Northwest GIS User Group Conference is now open and available on the NWGIS website. This year's conference is being held at the Salem Convention Center in Salem, Oregon. Pre-conference workshops are October 17-18, 2016 and the full conference is October 19-21, 2016. This year's conference theme is "Bridging the Gap." Our session themes offer five lenses to illuminate where we are and where we want to be.
Northwest GIS User Group – GIS Teaching Grant 2016
One of the goals of the Northwest (NW) GIS User Group is to foster and support GIS education in our region. Due to the financial success of the past several Northwest GIS conferences that we have hosted, our organization can now offer, on a one year pilot basis, a GIS teaching grant of up to $5,000.
Plan on attending the NWGIS User Group conference in Salem, Oregon October 17-21, 2016.
The theme of the conference is “Bridging the Gap”. The venue for the conference will be the Salem Convention Center. Prior to the actual conference we will offer various training opportunities as well as volunteer project to help give back to the community. Look for a call for presentations next spring and mark your calendar for the 31st Northwest GIS User Group Conference.
