Field trips for in-person participants

If you’re traveling to Oklahoma City for #NACIS2021, consider staying on Saturday, October 16th to go on one of these great excursions.
  • NACIS will be offering a field trip to Oklahoma State University Library’s Maps and Spatial Data Department in nearby Stillwater, which you can sign up for as part of your conference registration
  • NACIS attendees can also sign up for field trips to the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum or the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, both led by our colleagues at the Southwest AAG Regions Connect conference. To sign up for these SWAAG trips, please visit their Regions Connect page. You will need a free AAG login to access the registration page, and these field trips for NACIS attendees appear as separate dropdown items in their registration list.
Come and explore Oklahoma with us!

Join us online

During the conference, a lot of conversation will happen on our NACIS Slack. Slack is a text chat tool available as a website and mobile app, where conversations happen in channels. Every NACIS session has a channel, we also have channels for general conversation and getting help. Here’s a guide to getting started with Slack.

If you ever have questions or issues, visit the #help-attendee channel in Slack and we’ll be there to help.
