UGIC is pleased to announce that this year UGIC conference will include
an Educator Workshop specifically designed for helping educators learn
more about GIS technology and how to use it in the classroom.  This
workshop is the result of the hard work of Kevin Sato.  We thank him for
his commitment to the educators of Utah.  If you know of any educators
that would benefit from this training please refer them to the web page

We are looking for volunteers to assist in teaching and overseeing
various portions of the workshop.  If you are interested please contact
