    Are you working on a project in your organization that would help other GIS professionals?  Have technical expertise you can share with others?  Would you like to start a dialogue on a current issue in your industry? The best way to continue to move our industry forward is to share those ideas and experiences.

    Why not consider presenting at the 2019 Missouri GIS Conference!  This conference will give you the opportunity to discuss your work, receive feedback, share and explore new ideas with other GIS professionals. We are looking for topics from everything from local government, utilities, education, private sector and more!

    Why present?

    • Share your knowledge with others who may be looking for ideas
    • Increase recognition for the work you and your organization are doing
    • Presenting at conference can be used for GISP Certification

    Submit a short abstract online at http://www.mogiscon2019.com/call-for-abstracts/. There are multiple presentation length options. All abstracts are due by March 1, 2019.

    Dear Exhibitors,

    MAGIC would not be what it is without you. Throughout the years you have supported us by registering and sponsoring our Symposium. Your support allows us to continue hosting the Symposium and providing additional events to our membership. 

    Don't let this year be any different! Registration is open now. Space is very limited! And, can I just say we have some amazing deals for our sponsorships. Seriously - $1000 to sponsor our 30th Anniversary Reception? Come on! That's highway robbery - but great for you!

    Sign Up Now!

    Big Hugs,

    MAGIC Symposium Planning Committee

    Hello MAGIC members!! Thank you for all your tremendous support and interest over the years.

    The 2018 conference will be here before you know it. MAGIC is already working hard to prepare the most interesting and valuable workshop content, structured in a format that is convenient and rewarding for you. The following list of potential workshop offerings, are based on your input from the 2016 post-Symposium survey, along with our popular standbys and some new additions. Workshops will take place April 23 and 24, 2018. If there is enough interest, we may offer additional workshops on April 26. Workshops have traditionally been our bookends to the Symposium concurrent session schedule.

    Please take just a few moments to fill out our short survey about our pre-conference workshops:

    Can you believe that just 30 short years ago we had our first Symposium? Crazy, right?

    Well, we are happy to announce that we will be celebrating MAGIC 2018 in Omaha, Nebraska at the Doubletree Downtown Omaha on April 22-26

    More information will be coming to you shortly. But, you can make sure to Join MAGIC, and also share with your friends!

    As you've probably noticed, we've been a little silent as of late. Well, we've spent the last several months in our dungeons completely revamping MAGIC and our branding. As you can see, we have a new logo and a new website. And we love both of them.

    This new website is a complete overhaul. We will begin (free) membership management, forums, blogs, group, AND event registration through this site. We've only begun to scratch the surface on this site - so if you have an idea - send it our way!

    Please pass the word along for folks to join MAGIC (for free)!

    We are really excited to announce our new MAGIC logo. Not only does it replace one that we've been using for 30 years, but we believe it makes a statement as to who we are. The logo is comprised of 9 segments, each representing a MAGIC state. But, they come together as a whole, illustrating our unification - which is what the MAGIC community is. We hope you like it too!
