I am pursuing a career in GIS and I need to refresh my skills and learn new ones. Which tutorials, classes, websites, industry magazines, conferences, etc. would you recommend?

I graduated in 2007 with a Masters in Urban Planning with a GIS concentration. I'd really like to go into GIS, but my career has stagnated since graduation and I've been working in an unrelated field. I need to get up to speed on the latest developments in software (including open source) and best practices. My courses used ArcGIS 9.2, ArcIMS, ERDAS and Idrisi. How should I brush up on my old skills, and what new skills should I pursue? I asked this question
about programming languages - would you change any of the answers? I would also appreciate advice specific to the GIS field on networking and searching for jobs.
