Make a difference in NYS GIS!

This is the last call for volunteers to serve on the New York State Geospatial Advisory Council (GAC). The GAC has openings for local government representatives and one private industry representative. It is a unique opportunity for GIS professionals to provide feedback to NYS on GIS-related topics in their respective geographic and professional sectors.

‘The NYS Geospatial Advisory Council  (formerly called the GIS Coordinating Body), operating under the auspices of the NYS ITS GIS Program Office, coordinates, promotes and facilitates the development, effective use, and sharing of geographic information. It also removes barriers to implementing geographic information technology to improve the delivery of public services, protect the public and the environment, and enhance the business climate for the benefit of the State, its municipalities, businesses, and citizens’.

GAC members serve 3-year terms beginning in January and may serve up to 2 consecutive terms. The Council meets quarterly in the Albany area.

Further information and governing documents can be found here:

If you are interested in this opportunity or have additional questions, please reach out to me before the submittal deadline of October 15th. I can be reached by email at

Rick Reichert
Geospatial Advisory Council Representative
