Welcome to NACIS 2015 in Minneapolis! This is the annual meeting of the North American Cartographic Information Society (NACIS). The theme for this year’s meeting is Mapping Interactions. See the schedule below and go to the NACIS website for more details.

The North American Cartographic Information Society, founded in 1980, is an organization comprised of specialists from private, academic, and government organizations whose common interest lies in facilitating communication in the map information community.

For those of you who were unable to attend the conference, or who couldn’t clone themselves to be at multiple talks at once, many slides are linked in the session descriptions below. Twin Cities local Kitty Hurley also put together this fantastic document summarizing much of what she saw at the meeting, so if slide decks aren’t linked, check out her notes.

How to Hire or Be Hired: A Jobs Panel
This panel will bring together professionals who have hired cartographers to discuss their hiring processes. The panel includes the following members:

Aileen Buckley, ESRI
Sarah Cordivano, Avazea
Leo Dillon, State Department
Martin Gamache, National Geographic
Andrew Hill, CartoDB

What do people who hire cartographers look for? How do they assess if candidates meet the skills and qualifications that they are looking for? Would they do anything differently next time they go through the hiring process? What can educators do to prepare students for the job market?

The format will include a set of prepared questions that each panelist will receive ahead of time. This panel will be useful both to those on the job market and those involved in hiring decisions.

Friday October 16, 2015 2:00pm - 3:30pm CDT
