Solution may require legislative action. Discussion.

Outreach & EducationMark Duewell
Six MGISAC members attended the MMA conference. Thought it was their best meeting ever. Attendance was down, however. Hit a lot of topics head-on: sunshine law, National Grid, mobile GIS. Seeking direction from the committee regarding the next regional workshop. Have had several invitiations but had tentatively agreed to go back to the West Central area first. Tri-Lakes is another good option. GIS activity in the north portion of the state is way down due to personnel changes. The hardest part is getting a location and a date. Discussion.
