Agenda for the Skidmore GIS Conference - January 10, 2007 (From Robert Jones, Skidmore College)

Attached is the program for the Skidmore GIS Conference for Educators. Our day begins at 9:30 AM and ends by 3:30 PM. As with our June conference, there will be a few presentations on applications of GIS and plenty of time for round table discussion of items on the agenda or other topics of common interest. Be sure to forward this message to colleagues who may be interested in attending.

You do not need to formally register, but I would appreciate knowing if you plan to attend.

I look forward to seeing you next week
