With some inspiring speakers lined up for the next event on 11th May in Belfast, the AGI Northern Ireland annual conference, you'd better hurry to take advantage of the well priced tickets now on sale. Earlybird prices have been extended thanks to our Gold sponsors, however they won't last!

We've been out and about this month, at the FME World Tour in Keyworth on 14th April where Dean Findlay represented AGI Midlands; and Duncan Hill talked about the Foresight Report at the Yorkshire and Humber GIS Workshop, organised by West Yorkshire Combined Authority and attended by representatives from many local authorities and other public sector bodies across the region.

Duncan will also be speaking on Foresight at GeoDATA Liverpool tomorrow, 28th April. Then we'll be at GeoBusiness in late May on stand C2 so do come over and say hello.

In addition, Anne Kemp has had an article published in The 2016 National BIM Report with the AGI Foresight Report 2020 (of which she is Chief Editor) having due prominence, which is a sure sign of the importance of geospatial in the field now. (Monthly snippet in the right hand column to whet your appetite!)

The latest ECN webinar was held on 12th April, during which Steven Feldman gave his views on the current and future GIS landscape, asking whether people were 'doing GI, using GI, or in GI?' The next ECN webinar is on 16th May, with Paul Naylor and Charley Glynn presenting the second half of their Cartography & Cartographic Design tips. You'll be able to register for this from tomorrow.

Finally, members may already be aware of the sad news of the âdeath of Lord Chorley at the end of February. Lord Chorley was responsible for the Chorley Report in 1987 on The National Geographical Information Policy of Britain, the trigger that launched the AGI.

Lord Chorley continued to maintain links with AGI and members were in attendance at his memorial service held on 19th April. We are aware that many members will have memories of his involvement with the association. If you would like to send in your memories about Lord Chorley by no later than 19th May 2016 to [email protected].
