MONTPELIER, Vt. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 20, 2013 — The Vermont Center for Geographic Information (VCGI) announced the launch of a new online service last month to allow GIS professionals and others to register for educational events throughout Vermont and pay securely via credit card over the web. The new online service was launched on April 8, just two months after the launch of its new website, www.vcgi.vermont.gov.
"VCGI is excited to offer citizens the convenience of online registration for events, workshops, and trainings throughout the state," said Executive Director David Brotzman. “With just a few quick clicks from our website, citizens can select among a variety of events, register online, and pay securely over the web.”
The new service and website were both developed in collaboration with the state’s eGovernment partner, Vermont information Consortium (VIC). The event registration service, available anytime on the web at https://secure.vermont.gov/VCGI/eventreg/, provides users a limited number of screens to register, select event details, pay, and receive confirmation. It is the third implementation of VIC’s Event Registration service in 2013, and fifth overall.
For more information, visit the new website and service or call Leslie Pelch at 802-882-3002, or Jamie Gage at 802-229-4171.
VCGI is a public nonprofit providing free geospatial data, an online mapping application, and expert advice about options to everyone interested in mapping Vermont.
