North America Scholarship

Amount of $1,000 (awards typically in excess of $3,000 per year) The July 31st deadline to submit an application is fast approaching.

Award recipients are determined by your nominations. Deadline to submit nominations is August 15, 2017. Award presentations occur at Pipeline Week in early October. Take time to check out the Awards Program page of the GITA website and nominate today!

2017 Webinar Program is about to Start!
 
GITA's tradition of providing dynamic ongoing educational experiences for our membership and the greater geospatial community continues with the 2017 Webinar Program.

Get the details, mark your calendar, tell your friends, and join our first webinar of 2017 on Tuesday, July 18th:  "Mapping Crisis: A Standards Approach Using the United States National Grid." 
It's a Wrap!

A fifth successful EnerGIS conference has ended, but the results of a collaborative effort of all involved remain.

Over the past five years EnerGIS has been able to provide an educational networking experience to nearly 1,000 geospatial practitioners, award $19,000 in scholarships, and provide $2,500 to the Greater Washington County Food Bank. None of this would have been possible without the support of our host, Range Resources Corporation and the assistance of GITA.  Everyone involved is looking forward to a continued partnership for another great conference in 2018! 

GITA Wishes Everyone a Happy Fourth of July!
