GEOINT 2017 features young professionals program
Twenty-six young professionals hand-selected by USGIF have the opportunity to participate in the GEOINT 2017 Young Professionals Golden Ticket Program this week. This program is an exclusive agenda for young professionals—those 35-years-old and under or with five or less years experience in the GEOINT Community—to receive complimentary GEOINT Foreword and GEOINT 2017 Symposium registration.
As a Golden Ticket recipient, the young professionals will participate in a special agenda comprised of mentoring sessions and luncheons with senior leaders as well as USGIF’s invitation-only Chairman’s reception.
The recipients will also participate in the USGIF Young Professionals Group’s outreach project and accompany 30 San Antonio Boy Scouts on a geocaching mission Wednesday morning.
