Ohio Chapter URISA is excited to open up registration for the second annual GIS Education Series.  This is a one-day event in partnership with Columbus State Community College at their campus just outside of Downtown Columbus.   The event will be held on Tuesday, May 15th, 2017 from 8am  - 3:45pm with the main events at the Columbus State Conference Center with some workshops being held at a computer lab on campus.
The event will be filled with educational opportunities with Ask The Experts & Learn More About URISA panel discussions, presentations on ArcGIS Pro, Vector Tiles, Portal and Workforce and lastly an ArcGIS Python API workshop in a computer lab.   The computer lab will also be open in the afternoon to work on something you've learned or take the ESRI Online Courses through your MyESRI account without distractions at the office.  The schedule as well as details about presentations, workshops and presenters can be found here.
A light continental breakfast, lunch, and light snacks & drinks will be provided.  This year's lunch will be feature a taco & fajita bar.  Parking for this event will be free at Columbus State and free Wi-Fi will be provided for attendees.  
There will also be a vendor/sponsor room so you can connect with experts in the field.  Please contact us if your organization would like to participate as a vendor.
