Career Development Academy

This year the CDA theme is “Career Transitions” and will feature a panel presentation followed by a roundtable discussion focused on framing prior experience and assessing the potential benefits of continuing education. The interactive session is designed for any individual seeking to, or anticipating, transition from one stage of their career to another. Students, early career professionals, and seasoned GIS specialists are all invited to participate.  Also, we encourage participants to visit the “speed-review” tables for free, and friendly critique of job application materials – resume and/or cover letter.

More information available on the Career Development Academy page.

Post Conference Tours

GIS in the Rockies is excited to offer post-conference tours on Friday September 22, 2017. The collection of tours varies in content; some are more specifically related to the field of GIS, whereas others focus on the simple pleasures provided by natural, creative resources of the world.
