    The Midwest UC is the FIRST Esri Regional Conference to be scheduled in the Midwest. It has been a long time since the broader midwestern Esri user community met at the last Midwest ArcInfo User Group and we’ve been talking for years about bringing something similar back, and that time is here. For two full days this conference will provide a unique opportunity to network with about 300 attendees from across industries who are using GIS technology to create location strategies in their organizations.

    GIS Colorado is having their spring quarterly meeting in Stratton in May. Stratton is only about 20 miles from the Kansas/Colorado border on I-70 so not terribly far for Western Kansas folks to come. GIS Colorado would like to extend an invitation for those folks to join us at either the training or the meeting.

    Visit https://giscolorado.org/events/spring-quarterly-meeting-stratton for details.

    KAM members should have received an email blast on Monday, March 4, 2019, with more information about presenting or attending. If you did not receive that email and cannot find sufficient details on their website, please contact Deborah Wilson, GISP.
