We will be electing our 2020 board and officers,  reviewing chapter news and events for the past year, including OneURISA updates from the GIS Pro conference in New Orleans, our successful CalGIS 2019 gathering, and a look ahead to CalGIS 2020, happening February 9-11 in Long Beach. We 'll discuss updates of prominent state and local GIS initiatives. Don' t miss this opportunity for networking with enthusiastic GIS professionals.

All are welcome, even if you are not yet a member of this respected professional association. Invite a colleague; bring a friend. We'll have light refreshments, and folks may bring an adult beverage to share.
