BAAMA banner

UCB's Geospatial Innovation Facility has recently purchased an "Educational Membership" with the Bay Area Automated Mapping Association (BAAMA), which gives us the ability to add an unlimited number of UC Berkeley students, faculty, and staff. If you would like to become a BAAMA member, simply send me an email to Kevin Koy with the subject "BAAMA Membership" and include the name and email address that you would like associated with your membership.

BAAMA is a great local network for geospatial professionals from a variety of different fields, and membership gives you free access to attend their regularly held educational presentations. You can find a list of upcoming and previous sessions on the BAAMA website.

In addition to events and meetings, BAAMA regularly publishes an informative journal and hosts an active job board for local geospatial job opportunities, and provides an opportunity to connect with professionals for mentorship.
