Dear SCGIS Community,
In these uncertain and isolating times, SCGIS is working to find ways to support and bring value to your work and provide an opportunity for us to come together to exchange ideas and build further strength and resilience into our community.
Beginning July 20th, we will kick off the 2020 Virtual SCGIS Conference Series, a sequence of presentations, workshops, and panels on conservation GIS, all available for FREE and spread over a few weeks. Additionally, we will have a few intensive skill workshops for a small fee.
While not the same as coming together in person for a few days, a primary benefit of the virtual conference series is that for the first time we have the opportunity to make the conference available for EVERYONE in our community to attend, in a true global meeting of the minds. If you can’t attend a session in real time, our sessions will be recorded and posted to our website and made available to our members to watch at a later date. To avail yourself of the recorded sessions, begin or renew your membership today.
The SCGIS Virtual Conference Series is broken into manageable bite sized sessions that we’ll keep rolling out throughout the summer, and announcing on Eventbrite.
It will include workshops, panel discussions, and talks - from our many chapters as well as our members. Details can be found on the Agenda page.
Registration to attend will be handled through Eventbrite. All of the sessions (both paid workshops and free events) can be found here, and each event must be registered for separately. Once you have registered, a confirmation email will be sent to you with instructions for accessing the session.
We hope you are well and that you will be able to attend a workshop or free session, and share your work virtually with the SCGIS community.
The SCGIS Conference Committee
