The organizers of the QGIS North America 2020 virtual conference would like to solicit proposals for participation in this conference to be held online on Friday, July 17th (and potentially Friday, July 24th, with sufficient interest) in the form of talks, workshops, birds-of-a-feather networking sessions, and ideas for other session.  Proposals for sessions should be submitted online via our Google Form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScXVbO58aMZMmHo1mT5QEpF7uPki79e8PCyRJ9tBna_2IcAvw/viewform?usp=sf_link

We offer this meeting as a way to share our ideas and skills when so many in-person meetings cannot safely happen.  We recognize that while we are all separated, we have the opportunity to include people in a greater diversity in locations and economic situations since travel and registration costs are not necessary.  We invite participation from all over the globe, but presentation times will focus on the North American audience.
