No action on #1850, probably dead. FLAIR act probably dead too, at least for now.HB426may spin up again. Pam K: Rural interest is usually around 911, but new homes forgoing land lines. Tony: E911 addresses wireless technology. Pam K: does not address funding.
MSDIS ActivitesMark Duewell
Staying busy with web site, MAGIC Symposium. NAIP data causing bandwidth issues. GTC training in demand, particularly Remote workshop. Digital Government Summit and Missouri Mappers events coming up.
Missouri GIS ConferenceTony Spicci
MAGIC numbers initially low but came in slighly lower that 2004 late; need to decide what to do about MOGIS. David D: Bylaws 3.6 and 3.7. Pam K: move content into mini-conferences. Mark D: two-day conference: workshops on day one, sessions on day two. Ray F: ditto Pam’s comments. Steve M: move beyond paper presentations. Create educational environment: handouts, something that people can go home and do. David D: difficulty of finding workshops. USENIX Annual Technical Conference holding workshops through duration of conference. Greg R: like MMA’s more social model. Maybe throw more support to mini-conference. Tony S: we have not done much in the past socially. Has to be executed successfully. Mark D: being able to shift costs around. Pam K: how committed are we to Tan-Tar-A? Melissa L: social activities do matter. Discussion. Steve M: go into the evening with sessions. Shortening it would be a mistake. Mark D: have to show value-add to raise price 50%. Tony S: conference chair presentations at June meeting. Jamie Schieber has left the MU Conference Office. Do we remain with MU, Jamie, or find a third party? Bid coming from Jamie’s company.
