AAGIS Quarterly Meeting and Happy Hour!
Thursday, June 23 | 
The Flying Saucer

Who wants to have another happy hour??  It's about that time.  They only get better, folks.  This month we'll be at The Flying Saucer, located at 11255 Huebner Road, #212.  More beers on draft than you can name out loud, and lots of fun with your GIS cohorts.  See you soon!
A Letter from the President
AAGIS Members and Friends, 

Summertime is here and school is out, but AAGIS is still in full swing as we continue our commitment to growing professionally and reaching out to future GIS professionals. 

Many great things have happened since our last newsletter.  We had many old friends and a few new ones join us for networking and had some great discussions.  I’ll be looking for you at our next meeting on June 23rd.   We have also been hard at work with planning the 2016 GIS Day.  Thank you to all the volunteers that have already stepped up to help.  If you are interested in becoming a part of this committee please contact me and we will get you plugged in.  More GIS Day updates will be available next month as we get more tasks complete. 

Thank you for being a part of the San Antonio GIS community.  I look forward to seeing you on June 23rd.


Santiago Jaramillo
AAGIS President
