2007 MN GIS/LIS Fall Conference Will Move to Rochester!
By Rebecca Foster, MN GIS/LIS Conference Chair-Elect for 2007

On behalf of the Minnesota GIS/LIS Consortium, I am pleased to announce that the 17th Annual Conference and Workshops on Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Land Information Systems (LIS) will be held in Rochester, Minnesota at the Mayo Civic Center on October 10-12, 2007.

Money Magazine recently said it best, "One thing to remember about Rochester is that it has the sophistication of a larger metro area, but not the congestion or the complications." Named "Best Small City" in America by the nationally recognized magazine, Rochester merges a cosmopolitan atmosphere with Midwestern hospitality giving convention attendees a most memorable experience. City... Simplified.

The board is excited about the new opportunities Rochester has to offer. The Consortium will be making history, since this will be the first time we've held a fall conference in the southern part of the state. Hopefully, we will be bringing further educational and networking possibilities from new attendees to our conferences who are living in southern Minnesota, northern Iowa, and southwestern Wisconsin.

The Rochester Convention & Visitors Bureau will have a booth this fall in our Exhibit Hall displaying what the Mayo Civic Center, hotels, and City of Rochester has to offer for us next year. If you'd like to do some touring of the city now, visit their website at If you have any questions or need additional information please contact Rebecca Foster, MN GIS/LIS Conference Chair-Elect at
