The East TN 2017 Regional Meeting will be in Hamilton County on October 4th. Click the image below to sign up – it’s free.
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:
MARK YOUR CALENDARS!

TNGIC (Tennessee Geographic Information Council) has announced their next round of conferences in Tennessee. Out of these three I plan on hitting the East Tennessee meeting in Knoxville.
- West TNGIC GIS Forum, Jackson – Oct. 7-8, West TN UT Center – training on the 7th
- East TNGIC GIS Forum, Knoxville – Oct. 16-17, 2014 – UT Knoxville
- MAGIC, Memphis – Nov. 6-7, 2014 – at the The Salvation Army Kroc Center
- Middle TNGIC GIS Forum, Murfreesboro – Nov. 19-20, 2014
- April 2015 TNGIC Conferenc – Montgomery Bell State Park
The one I’m not going to hit is theMain Conference in Montgomery Bell since it’s too far out for me to visit. The regional ones are great – they are small, localized, and it’s people solving problems. Of course being that TN is heavily invested in ESRI there’s also all of that.
Anyway – come look for me. I’ll be the guy giving the oddball presentation that will be *hopefully* completely different than all the rest.
Ladies and Gentlemen – Boys and Girls – Children of all Ages.
I present: http://www.cumberlandurisa.org/
The Cumberland Chapter of URISA is a collaborative community of GIS professionals in Kentucky and Tennessee with a local focus and an international perspective. Our mission is to encourage the advancement of geospatial knowledge through education, professional development, ethical practice and advocacy.
I can’t speak about Kentucky – but I can about Tennessee. We’ve needed an org to advance the GIS Professional life in Tennessee. We’ve had TNGIC and will continue to have that organization. It’s state centric – we need a group that isn’t. Life exists outside the state.
So join up. Prepare to take some workshops. Prepare to get active.
