GeoAlberta News

The Alberta Geomatics Group (AGG) and URISA Alberta have come to the joint decision to dissolve the current Memorandum of Understanding which founded and maintained the GeoAlberta conference. This decision was amicably reached by both parties but does not signal an end to the work both groups intend to perform together. 

As the full extent of the COVID-19 pandemic is not yet clear, leadership from both URISA Alberta and AGG felt that a large-scale, in-person gathering was not prudent for the safety of our members. The financial and reputational risk of such gathering is beyond what either group is currently willing to risk. 

We want to thank all of the volunteers, organizers, participants, and sponsors who have supported the GeoAlberta conference throughout the years. Without your passion, dedication, and experience the geomatics community in Alberta would be all the less. Thank you. 

The AGG and URISA Alberta are already talking about mutual support, cross-promotion, and the continuing effort to bring high-quality networking, social, and educational programming to our members. While we do not know the full extent of this cooperation, it will foster new and creative opportunities for members of both associations to succeed together.
