President's Message 2020
Dear All Association Members,
I’m deeply honored and thrilled to serve as the President of the NYS GIS Association. I have been a long-time Member and believe strongly in our mission and outreach to the collective Membership whom we serve. Over the course of my term, I hope to bring about healthy changes and help us to adapt to the ever-growing GIS technological landscape!
Being new to this Board, I am grateful to work alongside and gain perspective from our Past-President, Rick Reichert, as we together, with the commitment from the Board members, continue to pursue an agenda to support content and growth within the Membership.
As always, I would encourage all members to become involved with the Association as even a small-time commitment can have lasting impact! Through your efforts, the Association becomes a more impactful resource to us all, our communities, and our profession.
In the coming months I personally hope to find us working on the following tasks:
- Providing support to our Regional GIS groups and strengthen partnerships with other non-profit Associations
- Pursuing professional development opportunities including specialized training credits (micro-credentialing)
- Increasing support for Committees
- Growing membership numbers and participation
- Support of a new, fresh Association website
I welcome feedback and ideas from our membership. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me personally. I can be reached by email at email@example.com.
Let’s make this a great year for the Association!
President, NYS GIS Association
