Save the Date: Utilities and Municipal Assets
The province of Ontario has been undergoing a challenging search for new energy and water sources to meet community energy and water/wastewater needs while trying maintain existing infrastructure. Compounding this has been the changing ownership of utility companies through mergers and acquisitions. Increasing government regulations on these utilities to promote a cleaner environment, have also been a challenge. Come and see how the Geospatial community has risen to meet these challenges.
BeSpatial / urisa ontario's Western Region is excited to host a one day session focused on using Geospatial tools and technique to manage Utilities and other municipal Assets. All members are welcome.
Date: October 29, 2019
Time: 9am- 3pm

URISA International’s GIS-Pro Conference and AGM
Please join our president, Susan Muleme Kasumba, at the URISA International's GIS-Pro Conference and AGM in New Orleans, September 29th to October 2nd, 2019. This is a great opportunity to network with your geospatial counterparts from around the world (but mostly Americans). There are some great initiatives that we can learn from.
A message from our President:
I will personally be attending the Building Community Using Geospatial Tools- half day workshop on Sunday the 29th. It covers how many organizations and community groups are taking GIS out of the back room and are using it in public settings.
I am also excited about the student and young professionals sessions. I am hoping to bring back our Vanguard Cabinet, with your support.
I hope to see you there. Please email me if you have any questions.
