NSGIC Annual Conference 2021
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
The NSGIC Board of Directors, Conference Committee, and staff couldn’t be more excited to welcome many of our members and partners to meet again in person!
The 2021 NSGIC Annual Conference will be held September 20 - 24 as a hybrid event at the Renaissance Dallas Addison Hotel and leveraging technology to provide for virtual participation, as well.
The safety and comfort of conference participants are paramount. We will be following all guidance in place at the time of the conference and working closely with venues to ensure full care is given.
We understand that not all conference attendees will be able to join us in person. Those participating virtually can expect a rich experience with interactive plenary presentations, networking opportunities, and participatory workshops and other sessions. (We’re so sure you’re going to enjoy the experience, we urge you to consider participating from home or another space where you can give it your full attention.)
Whether you attend in-person or virtually, the NSGIC Annual Conference is the hub of critical connections for state, local, tribal, and federal GIS policymakers and coordinators, private sector partners and solution-providers, and other leaders in the geospatial ecosystem. Like nowhere else, the NSGIC Annual Conference is a place where relationships are built, information is shared, and collaborations are born.
The agenda consists of:
- Roll Call of States - where state representatives sharing a snapshot of achievements, challenges, and upcoming activities
- State Caucus - a roundtable discussion with state and local government representatives to talk frankly about the most pressing issues of the day
- Annual Business Meeting - including the election of new board members and leadership transition
- GIO Academy - leadership sessions and networking for state government GIOs and equivalents (separate registration is required)
- Speed Networking - the fun and fast-paced series of events where sponsors rotate to complete the circuit of visiting with all states
- Awards Ceremony - recognizing exceptional work through the Geospatial Excellence Awards and NSGIC Service Awards
- Much, much more!
