I hope you are planning to attend.  Here are some reasons you should attend this year's conference:

Get inspired by Dr. David DiBiase, ESRI's Director of Education, as he delivers a talk titled, "Stand and Be Counted: Seven Ways to Strengthen the GIS Profession."

Add to your GIS skills and knowledge by attending some short course workshops (Topics: Introductory LiDAR; Python; Precision Farming; Cartography Basics; and ArcGIS Mobile & Trimble Positions.)   

Network with other GIS professionals from around Iowa and the our region.

Visit the National Czech and Slovak Mueseum and historic Czech Village of Cedar Rapids as part of the Wednesday night IGIC Banquet.   

Experience the hospitality and beauty of  Hotel Kirkwood and the Kirkwood Community College campus.
This year the conference is going to be in Cedar Rapids, Iowa at the Kirkwood Community College (KCC).  If you have never been to Kirkwood, you are in for a nice surprise.  The 675 acre campus features many beautiful buildings and works of art, and provides supports a diversity of majors and activities. On Thursday, the final day of the conference you will get a chance to experience some of what Kirkwood has to offer including: KCC Culinary Arts cooking demonstrations; Iowa Equestrian Center tour and riding demonstration; KCC Wind Turbine tour; and KCC Vineyard and Winery tour.
