The Wisconsin Land Information Association is searching for speakers to present at the 2015 Annual Conference February 18 – 20 at the KI Convention Center in Green Bay, WI. The 28th annual conference, “Data Forward”, will focus on innovative data sharing, applications, and putting our data into the hands of the population.
If you have an interesting presentation or an idea for a quality educational session, workshop, or case study that you would like to share you are encouraged to submit a proposal. Presentation proposals reflecting the following are requested:
Your abstract should be relevant to the conference theme and focused on education, innovation, sharing and advancing the land records and GIS profession in Wisconsin. WLIA sessions are non-commercial and vendor neutral. Under no circumstance should a session be a direct promotion of a speaker’s product or services. Your emphasis should be on the application of a concept or a solution, our attendee’s want real world examples of what works and practical take-away tools or solutions.
Being selected as a conference speaker is your opportunity to “show off” and gain visibility in our profession. You also help to educate other GIS/LIS professionals and contribute to making WLIA a stronger association.
Complete the presentation form on the WLIA website before Friday, October 31st. You may submit more than one presentation.
If you are selected to be a speaker, you will be contacted via email by November 14th. WLIA also requests speakers to provide your presentation and any handouts in MS PowerPoint or PDF format. These will be archived on the WLIA Website after the conference.
Any questions, please contact Adam Derringer, 2015 Conference Chair at (608) 443-1231.
