We had a great meeting in Opelika, AL! A big thank you goes out to Opelika Utilities for being a great host.
The people were awesome. The facility was amazing. The weather was perfect!
Hopefully everyone enjoyed the meeting as much as we did. The Esri water team is looking forward to the next meeting in July and especially the next February meeting. In February, 2015, the Team Water/Wastewater Meeting will become the Esri Water GIS Conference. To ensure that this change brings more value and benefit to you we have created a short survey. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey and tell us what you would like the conference to be like.
Looking forward to seeing everyone this July in San Diego!
