What is your NWGIS Board up to?

Sat, 05/19/2012 - 2:51pm -- Kessler GIS
  • We now have a full 11 board members. Montana is now represented by 2, yes 2 board members!
  • We have a number of committees that we’ve created and each is working on improving your organization.
    • Election: working on better communication and going digital (some of this requires by-law changes)
    • Membership: defining membership and benefits so you know why you want to be a member
    • By-law review: the by-laws need to be updated and clarified some
    • Web page: an active team has moved it to a better server (which you don’t see) and a doing a full redesign. This will be a place to go for information and connections.
    • Brown bags: we’re starting to sponsor smaller sessions around the northwest. Got an idea? Give us a shout!
  • We have four of our board members working directly with URISA on making the Portland conference a big success
  • We also have a number of other topics on our plate such as a scholarship fund, a committee on publicity, annual awards for leading GIS advocates. We just need time and people to get these going.

  • Want to jump in and help? We need your ideas and energy. Give us a shout!
