WELCOME TO THE MAINE GIS USER GROUP!
Don’t forget to renew your membership or join MEGUG!
The Maine GIS User Group is partnering with the Maine Municipal Association for the Maine Municipal Technology & New Energy Conference. This year’s event is Tuesday, April 28, 2020 at the Augusta Civic Center.
If you are interested in presenting at the Maine Municipal Technology conference in our GIS track please contact Judy Colby-George as soon as possible. We are looking for unique and interesting talks focused on GIS for municipalities. Ideally your talk would feature some new technology or innovation that would be of interest to municipalities but we are open to most anything GIS. Talks should be 30 minutes, or you can put together a panel discussion that would be a 60 minute slot. We are flexible, so feel free to contact Judy with any ideas you think would be interesting.
If you are interested in sponsorship of the 2020 MMA Technology conference, please visit the sponsorship registration page.
MEGUG Day at Fall NEARC 2019 at Sunday River in Bethel, ME was a great success. We are pleased to welcome new board members Don Katnik from Maine Inland Fisheries and Wildlife and Becky Schaffner from Maine Dept of Envionmental Protection. Thank you to out-going board members Nicole Cyr and Brad Folta for your service.
