Do I need to prepare a speech?

No, you will not need to prepare an acceptance speech for your award.

Will I receive complimentary registration to the Esri UC?

Receipt of award does not imply complimentary registration to the Esri UC or any other Esri-produced events. If your ArcGIS subscription is up-to-date, then your registration for Esri UC may be complimentary. We hope that you or a member of your organization is able to register to attend the conference.

What other recognition is involved?
