A few months ago I was researching Canadian GIS Associations trying to decide which one to join as I wanted to reach out and network more with like minded GIS people.  I quickly discovered that the more digging I did, the more associations I found….which led me to wonder:

How does one decide which to join, and why would someone choose one over the other?

I also considered that current graduates must find this even more mind boggling being new to the industry.

So I put my questions out to the GIS world on LinkedIn.

Asking the professionals that are part of the Canadian GIS group is sure to bring some answers.  27 comments later, a post was written on Canadian GIS highlighting Canadian Associations.  Perfect, thank you Ted MacKinnon!
