USGIF selected 25 up-and-coming GEOINTers for its 2018 Young Professionals Golden Ticket Program. This is an exclusive opportunity for young professionals—individuals 35-years-old and under or with five or less years of experience in the GEOINT Community—to take part in a specially tailored agenda.

In addition to receiving complimentary GEOINT Foreword and GEOINT 2018 Symposium registration, Golden Ticket winners will benefit from activities such as mentoring discussions, luncheons, networking receptions, and an invitation to the USGIF Chairman’s Reception.

Golden Ticket recipients will also participate in the USGIF Young Professionals Group’s outreach project, accompanying high school Junior ROTC cadets from the Tampa area in a data collection activity. In collaboration with the World-Wide Human Geography Data Working Group, students will use a free, open-source mobile app to collect data in Tampa neighborhoods that are susceptible to natural disasters. The information collected will be shared with local first responders.
