In a post on the GIS Corps website GIS Corps chair Shoreh Elhami, GISP notes the need for five volunteers to aid in GIS work in the devastated area. If you are interested and not already on the Corps volunteer list, see if you have the “right stuff” and sign up.

Autodesk University registration is open. And, after last year’s “non-disclosure” situation with the press, there’s a new twist: a confidentiality agreement for attendees and exhibitors. Be sure to get your legal staff to review it before you sign up!

This from a post on MapInfo-L in response to an offer to help with GIS and the hurricane:

Although there may be a need right now, this type of info is probably being handled on the Federal Gov’t end by the Incident Management Teams that are down their to provide relief. I myself am a federal GIST, recognized within the resource ordering system as one. You would have to be a GIST within ROSS and be made “available” to help. Even if you have years of experience, you can’t just be made a GIST because there are protocols for data collection, naming conventions, etc. that are taught to GIST’s.
...

Also be aware that the federal standard for these type incidents is ArcGIS.

I am not saying that there no chance your services might or can be used, just making the point of what is probably going on.
