ACSM to Delay Annual Conference Co-location with GITA

Aurora, Colo.-The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) announced that it has been informed by the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping (ACSM), Gaithersburg, Md., that due a conflict with a major construction industry trade show, ACSM will be unable to co-locate its annual conference with GITA’s annual conference and exposition in 2008. The two organizations have agreed to postpone the co-location of their respective conferences to an as yet undetermined date.

GITA will hold its Annual Conference 31 March 9-12, 2008, in Seattle, Wash.

“We regret having to make this difficult decision, but we look forward to finding even more ways to bring our events together in future years,” said Curt Sumner, ACSM executive director. “In the meantime, we’ll continue to strengthen the partnership through ACSM member organizations.”

“Planning to co-locate our conferences was a bold move on the part of both organizations and one that GITA undertook with a lot of forethought about the impact upon our membership,” said Bob Samborski, GITA executive director. “We still think that bringing the surveying and GIS communities closer together represents a positive step for both associations and the industry in general, but it now appears that additional circumstances will need to be addressed before we can make it happen. GITA will remain very open to any collaboration that benefits the geospatial industry.”

ACSM and GITA originally decided to participate in a co-location during GITA’s Annual Conference 29 and the 2006 ACSM Conference, which were both held in Florida in April 2006.
