President's Message To Members

Many thanks to GITA’s volunteers who assisted in the planning and execution of our 27th Annual Oil & Gas Pipeline Conference, branded with our partners at Gulf Energy Information as the Pipeline Technology Forum. Special thanks to Gulf staff members Karen Francis and Brian Nessen and GITA members Ted Tomes and Matt Thomas. 

The GITA Board of Directors looks forward to the 2019 event. No dates or a venue have yet to be set, but we’ll advise our membership and sponsors once arrangements are in place. Work is underway for two Spring 2019 events. Keep them in mind as you plan your spring conference and training schedules:

  • March 26-28: GITA will be in Tampa at the CGA 811 Excavation Safety Conference, producing a GIS educational track.
  • April 25-26: GITA’s highly successful EnerGIS Conference will take place in suburban Pittsburgh. The call for papers and scholarship applications are now open. Please visit EnerGIS conference for details.
