Early Registration Deadline Nears for GIS in the Rockies 2005

Only two weeks remain to register for the 18th Annual GIS in the Rockies conference at the advance rate. "By registering now, a person can attend the full three-day conference this year for the same price they paid for one-day registration last year," said James Martin, Registration Coordinator. Karen Brandt, Chair of the Planning Committee, added "The fact that registration is six times what it was at this point last year indicates people see this conference as great value for their time and money."
