The GoGeomatics Back to School Socials Are Just around the Corner!


Over the past month, we’ve been spreading the word about the Back to School Socials to the geomatics community over email, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Meetup, and even putting posters up around town! We’ve had an incredible response from geomatics students, professors, graduates, and professionals across Canada. Everyone’s excited to celebrate the new school year together at the GoGeomatics Back to School Socials.

Take a look at the dates and locations for our Back to School Socials, and mark your calendar!

We wanted to hold this social in honour of Canadian geomatics students for two reasons:

  1. It’s never too early in your career to start networking
  2. Networking doesn’t have to be boring!prizes

Our monthly socials take place in pubs across the country – it gives people the chance to network in a casual, laid-back environment, while enjoying a drink and a great atmosphere. At the Back to School Social, you’ll enjoy free snacks, meet some great people, plus have the chance to win door prizes!

For those of you who attend the socials in Calgary and Edmonton, you’ll also receive a $10 off voucher for our upcoming Alberta Career Seminars.

It’s not too late to send in your RSVP to info@gogeomatics.ca. We’d love to see you there!

Thank you to our sponsors

We’d like to give another big shout out to Esri Canada, Geospatial Advancement Canada, and the Canadian Remote Sensing Society for supporting the community by sponsoring the Back to School Socials.
