CCURISA will be sponsoring a Bakersfield GIS User Group meeting August 18, 2016 from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM.  This is a great chance to get out and meet the local GIS user community, to share your achievements, and to learn from others.

Ragi Burham from AmigoCloud, Dr. Sheila Steinberg from Brandman University, and Crystal Dorn from ESRI will be presenters, but we would like to get some local flavor as well.  Let us know if you have something to share by sending an email to


Location: University of La Verne, 1201 24th St #D200, Bakersfield, CA 93301

Time: 9:00am – 1:00pm (Q&A to follow)

Parking: FREE, small lot just east of the ULV building

Lunch: We will host a “working” lunch, serving sandwiches, snacks, and drinks during the lunch hour/final presentation
