Congratulations and thanks to Bob Samborski

Last night at the kickoff event for the GITA conference (for the committee, board and staff), Bob Samborski was honored for having served as the Executive Director of GITA for 20 years. Bob has really done a great job over this time, during which GITA has run in my opinion consistently the best independent geospatial conference in North America, as well as carrying out a lot of other educational activities and increasing work on advocacy and applied research. Bob has contributed a great deal to the industry and I hope he will continue to be at the helm of GITA for some time to come still!
