Twin Cities GECCo workshop achieves several milestones

from GITA

From Nov. 1, 2011: The Geospatially Enabling Community Collaboration — or GECCo — workshop series continued with the eighth event in the series last week in Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minn. The Twin Cities GECCo was attended by more than 90 local and regional geospatial professionals, including 14 executives from government, utility and private sector organizations.

"Several major operational improvements were built into the Twin Cities GECCo," according to Bob Samborski, GITA's Executive Director. "The local GECCo team really set the bar high for future events." For the first time, executives from local government, utility and private sector organizations were invited to attend an Executive Summary Session on the afternoon of the second day. This was an opportunity to articulate the group's findings, needs and concerns directly to people in important management positions who can make things happen. Following the briefing, nearly all the executives spoke to the group, offering words of encouragement and support for improving collaboration in the Twin Cities area. They will be kept up to date as the follow-on work of the Twin Cities GECCo stakeholders continues.

SharedGeo, a Twin Cities non-profit that co-sponsored the GECCo, recorded the presentations and will be posting them to the public side of Twin Cities GECCo site along with all support materials from the event. Additional information is available immediately from SharedGeo Executive Director Steve Swazee's blog. more
