2001 Missouri State GIS Conference

  • Program Committee: Jo Ann handed out the program to date. A number of slots are filled, but we still have some openings. Problem with a person wanting to do a keynote and how to have this happen was discussed. A number os sessions were added. Jo Ann will email an updated schedule for Committee members to review. Any additions and changes should be emailed to Jo Ann.
  • Workshops: Arnold Williams has secured 40 computers for the workshops needing hands-on approaches. He needs to know what software will be needed and he will also be working on the set-up and tear-down of the workshop computers.
  • Vendors: We already have had a number of responses. The vendor letter is to go out this week. Presentations for Tool Time will be sectioned into twelve 45-minute slots. Vendors will be asked to pay for these additional slots. Non-profits will receive special consideration. Some sort of deposit will be required to cover set-up; electrical and Internet will be additional costs.
  • General: The MGISAC needs a good logo for itself. All members have been asked to submit a logo by the January meeting. As well, a MGISAC brochure is needed. Jo Ann will create a mock-up of a tri-fold.
  • Treasurer: The MGISAC needs to see a budget for the conference and the Committee.
  • Publicity: Debbie Pitts will send out the Press Release for Committee review. Debbie will handle media coverage. We should also go to the legislature will a cover letter from the Committee. Debbie is compiling a list of people to send this too.
