It’s back! The Birds-of-a-Feather Breakfast is an opportunity to participate in a candid discussion about your GIS issues and concerns. Each session is informal, but will be moderated by IGIC Board members representing each sector. Four concurrent meetings will be held for:

  • State Government
  • County Government
  • City & Town Government
  • Higher Education

To ensure a frank and open conversation, attendance at each breakout session is limited to those working in that sector. All other conference attendees are invited to have breakfast.
