THE UNDERGROUND

CaliforniaGeo is pleased to offer a series of online regular meetings we call The Underground  for registered participants.  Our productions will be offered using our Zoom platform, lasting approximately one hour, Noon-to-1pm Pacific Time.  The topic may be an issue, a technique, or a technology—or how certain policies and regulations may affect those.

We will feature a host and presenter, or a panel of two-to-three who will make a short presentation on the subject and then take live or chat-based questions from the audience.  These will be free for CaliforniaGeo professional and affiliate members, and $10 for others. Membership will be verified after registration before access is provided.  Participation is limited.
