The 2017 AAG Annual Meeting will have many presentations of interest to GISPs, and attendees can earn GISP certification credits by participating. Attending provides several ways to earn points for the "Contributions to the Profession" and "Education" components of becoming a GISP. For more information, visit GISCI (www.gisci.org).

A workshop entitled "GISCI - An Exploration of Professionalism Early in a Career or Profession" will take place on Thursday, April 6, from 1:20 - 3:00 pm in the Jobs & Careers Center (Room 205, Hynes Convention Center, Second Level). Individuals attending this workshop will receive information on the various facets of a professional career, especially from a geospatial perspective. Included will be a discussion of certification and professional credentials in general, and the GISP, specifically, and how this area can help an individual succeed early and throughout one's career. GISPs who may have questions about renewing their certification are also encouraged to attend. Pre-registration is required.
