Congratulations to our newly elected CaGIS VP Thomas Pingel of Virginia Tech, and our two new Directors Kevin Hawley of the US Census Bureau & Samantha Arundel!

We also thank Howard Veregin from the Wisconsin State Cartographer’s Office and Matt Rice from George Mason University, who are rotating off the board. Thanks, Howard and Matt, for your service to CaGIS!

In addition to the many Cartography and GI Science related sessions at AAG this year, CaGIS would like to make sure the membership is aware of two particular events:

On Tuesday, April 2 from 6 – 8pm, CaGIS will be hosting a reception in the Johnson Room (note: not the Jackson Room as originally stated) at the Marriott Wardman Park. Hors d’ouerves and various adult beverages will be served. Come and mingle with colleagues, learn what CaGIS has been up to lately, and meet the board members of CaGIS.

On Wednesday, April 3 from 4:30 – 5:30 pm, there will be a USNC meeting held in room Delaware A, at the Marriott Wardman Park. We will be discussing the 2019 International Cartographic Conference and related activities.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
