These registrations are offered first to NAU's two technical support individuals. After that, in somewhat of a first come first served basis, and in no particular order, they are available to campus GIS Specialists, especially if from a cost contributing entity; individuals wishing to present at the conference; faculty and staff wishing to begin a new GIS initiative; and GIS educators. Lastly, if any remain late in the spring, these can go to anyone from NAU who wishes to attend.
Registration usually begins in December. While there is no cut off for requesting a complimentary registration, please contact Steve.Andariese@nau.edu as soon as you think you might be interested. This registration is "Subject to approval from your organizations Esri maintenance contact".
