This year, we're going virtual!

Since its inception 30 years ago, the NSGIC Annual Conference has been a meeting place for state GIS leaders to share successes and challenges; confer with federal, local, academic, nonprofit, and private sector colleagues; identify new opportunities; launch collaborations; contribute to NSGIC's growth and direction; and recharge. The world may have changed. The conference format may have changed. But the NSGIC Annual will continue on in its distinctive, decades-long tradition.

Join us for the 2020 Annual Conference to:

  • Connect, collaborate, and share with colleagues and thought leaders in the geospatial community
  • Take part in engaging livestream plenary sessions and choose on-demand content most relevant to your interests
  • Jump into pop-up meetings and interest group programming
  • Catch up with friends and make new contacts during the receptions, networking activities, and fun breaks throughout the conference



Registration is free to most member types - you must register to attend!

In this extraordinary time and under unprecedented circumstances, we are pleased to completely waive registration fees for all individual State Government and Institutional members, and members belonging to State Leader, State Council, and Federal Partner group memberships. Registration is also included in Sponsor packages.
