The opening sessions of this year's GEOINT Conference had a running theme: the need for new, well trained workers to fill open jobs within the industry. The need was echoed by all the morning speakers in particular, Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger, D-Md, who wants to make a "local push" for geo-education. Editor in Chief Joe Francica attended the sessions and swaps ideas with Adena Schutzberg about how to get young people involved in science, technology and geospatial technologies for GEOINT.
