    Have you ever looked at someone's name in their email signature and noticed they had 'GISP' after it? Ever wondered what that stood for?

    Even if you do know what it stands for, you may not have taken the leap to become one.

    If so, join us on April 20th from 10am to 11am (MST) for a webinar hosted by the GIS Certification Institute (GISCI).

    Come learn what that special 'P' stands for and why you should get it. Hear it directly from GISCI's coordinator and get a chance to find out exactly what it takes to be a GISP. Fifteen to twenty minutes will be set aside for your questions.

    Register here.

    Please note, webinar available for paid members only.

    Hello World!

    Women in GIS has moved!

    Virtually moved, that is. We are now hosting our site on Wild Apricot. It should look and feel pretty much like our old site, but now you'll be able to join our student/professional network and support Women in GIS with a donation.

    Thanks for being a part of our success!
