The 2018 Esri User Conference was held in San Diego from July 9-13 . This year was the third year, along with tens of other NGOs, GISCorps participated in the Sustainable World Community (SWC) Expo Exhibit. Our booth was visited by dozens of new and old volunteers, partners, and friends. It was coordinated by German Whitley, Core Committee member, assisted by volunteer (and husband) Curtis Day. The following volunteers also contributed hours staffing the kiosk. We are so thankful for their help: Alexis Handelman, Tarig Ahmed, Bethany Hall, Milan Budhathoki, Dacey Zelman-Fahm, Bhanu Vedula, Manjul Shrestha, Anand Trivedi, and Aaron Dorsey.
On Wednesday, we hosted our annual lunch presentation by Core Committee members Allen Ibaugh, Shoreh Elhami, and German Whitley. At least 25 volunteers were in attendance to hear about all the great work that happened over the last year.
Long-time volunteer Jeff Pires also presented the great (non-GISCorps) work he is doing on behalf of IOM Bangladesh supporting the Rohingya Refugee Crisis. The following photos were taken throughout the week. Click on any photo to see the slideshow version with captions.
