It is great to see the Southwest GA URISA Subchapter hold its first
meeting. Hopefully the new subchapter will be able to provide training
and networking opportunities to the growing GIS community located in
Southwest Georgia which are not allowed to travel out of state to attend
SHRUG meetings. This meeting, like SHRUG, does count as education points
for the GISP.   


Given that SHRUG is a well established and active GIS User group in the
region, it might be good to see if the subchapter and SHRUG might be
able to coordinate some activities. I think it would be beneficial for

Hello all,


I wanted to take just a minute and invite you to register for the first
South Georgia sub-chapter of GA-URISA lunch meeting being held here in
Thomasville on Tuesday May 03.  Please follow the link below for
registration information. 


For those friends in south GA on the SHRUG list this will be a very
informative program.  We have Dan Bollinger, Executive Director of the
SWGA Regional Commission and Heidi Penny, GIS Manager with SWGA RC
scheduled to present a program that covers their use of GIS in planning
and support to the local governments they serve.  Come learn about how
GIS has helped many communities and pick up ideas on how it can help


For my friends in N. Florida and S. Alabama this program could be of
benefit to you to.  Come learn about how GIS fits into the planning
process here in GA and leave with new ideas to take back to your state. 


Like with SHRUG events these lunch meetings provide great networking
opportunities for GIS professionals, Managers, consultants,
service/equipment providers, educators, students, and just about anyone
with an interest in GIS.


Not interested?  Please consider passing this email on to other who may
be.  Feel free to contact me via email or phone if you need more
