The Federal Programs Conference is the most important event on the annual MAPPS calendar. At this conference, members will hear briefings from major federal agencies on their budgets, programs, and upcoming contracting opportunities. It would take a firm months and tens of thousands of dollars to compile the Federal market overview you'll get in one day at the MAPPS conference. Members will also go to Capitol Hill to visit their state's U.S. Representative and Senators, advocating for legislation that will benefit private geospatial firms and the clients they serve. If you've never attended, MAPPS staff will prepare you for your Congressional visits. MAPPS is the only organization that hosts an activity like this representing the geospatial profession. This is the only event on the MAPPS calendar that is for members only.
