    Posted on behalf of the Maine GeoLibrary.

    The Maine Library of Geographic Information (aka Maine GeoLibrary) is reaching out to you to solicit your input by filling out a brief (5-10 minutes) online survey for the Maine GeoLibrary's strategic plan update project.

    The Timmons Group was selected to support the GeoLibrary Board in its work for planning our future. Their project plan includes identifying the Maine GeoLibrary Board operational needs and developing recommendations in the areas of executive leadership, membership, bylaws, increased collaborations, funding mechanisms, and support staffing. Progress updates to the Strategic Plan Project are located on the Maine GeoLibrary website under Strategic Plan.

    Your response is very important to us, so PLEASE Act now to fill out the survey before the Friday, October 1st due date!

    • A brief Story Map on the Strategic Plan Update process is located here (includes the Stakeholder Survey at the end).
    • Want to go straight to the survey without any upfront reading? Go here for the Stakeholder Survey.

    Please share the survey with your colleagues, and anyone who uses or has an interest in geospatial data, we want to be sure everyone has a chance to help us plan for the State's geospatial needs.

    Thank you for supporting the GeoLibrary and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

    Sincerely,

    Claire Kiedrowski

    From our partners at the Maine Municipal Association:

    Due to the precautions being taken surrounding COVID-19, MMA will not be holding any training events or meetings for at least 8 weeks, which means that the Municipal Technology and New Energy Conference has been postponed. It has been rescheduled for Tuesday, December 8th at the Augusta Civic Center.

    If you had already registered for the conference, you will automatically be registered for the new event date. However, if you cannot attend on that date and wish to cancel, please email wsreg@memun.org. There will be no cancellation fee imposed for those needing to cancel due to the date change. Cancelled registrations will be refunded if pre-paid.

    Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.

    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.
