In 2020, the Indiana Geographic Information Council surveyed GIS practitioners regarding their employment experiences.  During this free IGIC webinar Paul Turner-Smith and Kathy Lamb Kozenski, from IGIC's Education Committee, will talk about the background to the survey, present detailed findings from the subsequent report and discuss some of the implications for Indiana's GIS user community.  Join us as we explore how to 'live long and prosper' in GIS!
