16th Annual South Central Arc User Group Conference - Day 3
The day started early.....6 a.m.!! That's rough after a night of networking. At 8:30 we had breakfast, announcements of the new officers, a presentation from our K-12 student competition winners and our keynote speaker. You will be able to view the new officers at www.scaug.org soon. Our K-12 student competition winners were from the School of Excellence in San Antonio and they did an excellent project with the San Antonio Water System. Our keynote, Dr. Darrell McDonald, was from my alma mater, Stephen F. Austin State University, and did an excellent talk on regional geospatial service centers. It was good even though the presentation died half way through (technology!!). After breakfast it was on to the vendor hall. We had over 30 vendors this year. Wow! After lunch the day consisted of user presentations. In the evening we had a social which included many fun activities such as: voting on the map gallery, guess the image contest, application contest and the fastest map in the west. What a great day!!
