The California State University (CSU) Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Specialty Center annual board meeting is held in July at the San Diego Convention Center during the ESRI User Conference and Education User Conference. Prior to the board meeting, the GIS Specialty Center hosts a catered luncheon where all members of the CSU GIS community at the ESRI UC are invited to meet and provide input regarding the activities of the Specialty Center.
It is the policy of the GIS Specialty Center to provide travel money and one night of accomodation for one person from each campus to attend the board meeting. This may enable the board member or a representative to attend the meeting and conference in person. The board member does not need to attend the ESRI conference to attend the annual board meeting, but must attend the board meeting for the GIS Specialty Center to cover travel.
