Mission

The mission of the NYSGIS Association Legislative Committee is to promote the legislative agenda of the Association and educate members on legislative issues affecting or potentially affecting the geospatial profession.

Vision

The Committee will do this by:

  • establishing a formal legislative agenda for adoption by the Board each year,
  • conducting outreach to elected officials regarding issues on that agenda, and
  • coordinating with the Communications committee to inform members about current legislative issues.
