East TN Regional TNGIC Conference – September 22 2015 Kingsport TN

Jun 29, 2015 | GIS, Kingsport, Tennessee, TNGIC

So if you are in the area and you haven’t been – you should go to the best biggest smallest regional GIS conference in September. Luckily this conference drifts back up to Kingsport Tn where there is always a good showing. Will the suits show up from NASA? Will the 13 y.o. kid with the drone make an appearance? Will there be Moon Pies?

I’ll be there:


2015 Eastern Regional TNGIC Conference will be held at the Eastman Lodge in Kingsport, TN on Tuesday September 22, 2015 with training sessions tentatively planned for Wednesday, September 23rd.

We are tentatively planning a social gathering on Monday evening, September 21st at one of the Eastman picnic shelters near the lodge. Details of social to be determined based on how many are interested in attending.


Thank you,

Amesha Whitt awhitt@johnsoncitytn.org and Joyce Pierson joyce.h.pierson@gmail.com Conference Co-Chairs
