President's Message 2017


Andrew Mendola, President, NYS GIS Association, 2018

Dear Association Members,

Thank you for the opportunity to serve as President of the NYS GIS Association.  I am looking forward to continuing the great work that this group has done and will continue to do for all the members.  We have a board made up of very dedicated members that have answered the call to do more for the group as a whole.

Getting involved is the best way you can help the Association.  Many committees are in need of new members and you can find a list of committees and the chairs to contact on the website if you wish to get involved.  This Association could not exist without the hard work put in by all the volunteers on the various committees.

I am amazed at the work that the committees are performing on the behalf of the membership.

A few examples:

  • The Association is currently hard at work planning the Geospatial Summit for the fall of 2018 to be held in Skaneateles, NY at the Welch Allyn Lodge.
  • The Professional Development Committee is working hard to follow through on their commitment to offer monthly webinars to increase education and learning opportunities for the members.
  • Our Communications Committee does an outstanding job of relaying information to the members and keeping the website up to date with all that the Association has going on.

I would love to hear from you should have any questions or concerns.  You can always reach me by using the Contact Us page.

I look forward to what this year will bring and thank you again for the opportunity to serve all of you in this capacity.

Andrew Mendola

President, NYS GIS Association
