The CGSIC U.S. States and Local Government Subcommittee (USSLS), which focuses on State and local government applications of GPS and GPS augmentations, will conduct a regional meeting October 24, 2013 at the Field Technology Conference being conducted at the Holiday Inn Portland Airport, Portland Oregon (see USSLS charter here: http://www.gps.gov/cgsic/states/charter/ ). Because State and local governments experience travel and fiscal restraints, we have established regional meetings to improve our understanding of GPS activities with State and local governments as well as to provide information on the issues associated with GPS and its augmentations. In collaboration with the conference organizers, GPS World Magazine is going to web-cast the CGSIC meeting to gain a wider audience than just those that can attend in person. Web-cast details will be forthcoming in the next few weeks. All CGSIC meetings are free and open to the public and you are invited to come and learn about the broad array of GPS-based applications that are available to your State and local agency partners. Participation in this meeting will be mutually beneficial for your organization and for the Federal government. For more information, please contact Mr. Jim Arnold by e-mail to James.A.Arnold@dot.gov and/or Joseph White at firstname.lastname@example.org.
