Dear Geospatial Advocate,


The GeoLibrary Board will hold its regularly scheduled meeting this Wednesday, March 18, 2020 from 10 AM – NOON.  Usually we hold it in person at the Maine Public Utilities Commission in Hallowell with call in options available.  All are welcome to participate.


However, due to rapidly changing conditions with COVID-19 and health concerns, we will hold the meeting virtually.  Note that we dial-in for audio access, but use the Skype link for visuals.  Visuals are usually only shared during the Executive Director’s report.
