    Dear fellow NGIS colleagues,

    The NGIS Board is heartbroken over the tragic event that occurred in Las Vegas last night.  NGIS is comprised of many members who live and vacation in Las Vegas, and we hope that no harm has come to any of you, your family, or friends, as a direct result of the shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival.  

    We'd love to hear from you that you and your loved ones are safe, or any other information you'd like to pass on.



    NGIS Board

    Thanks for the kind words and concern.  Although not directly affected, I am drained by the despair that this can happen, but also encouraged by the kindness people have shown  for each other, your message board being an example.  Cheryl

    We are all heartbroken up here in the northern part of the state and we all wish we could do more to help. As part of the state's GIS community we naturally feel like one big family at some times more than others. THIS is certainly one of those times. 

    If any of you who are in response mode could use assistance on the GIS side of things, please do not hesitate to reach out to those of us up here. Any of us would be honored to assist you.

    Stay strong!

    This has been a completely devastating week.  I think we are all hovering between complete shock/despair of the senselessness AND hope/love for the outpouring of care and concern from the community. It is humbling to see so many selfless people ready to serve in whatever capacity they are capable. 


    As the days pass many of us are finding out about more and more loved ones affected by this.  Everyone I’ve talked to this week knows someone either personally or through a friend or family member.  Prayers, love and service will see us through the aftermath.  Thank you to everyone for your offers of just that.
