GITA President: Rumors of Our Demise Exaggerated

In its latest Multibrief e-mail newsletter, GITA president Talbot Brooks reports that with volunteer involvement the professional organization is alive and well.

SharedGeo (a 501 C3 non-profit in Minnesota), volunteers, and the GITA Board of Directors together have a plan to move beyond a "conference-centric model to one which better serves the professional educational needs of our individual and corporate members."

While no details were shared, the future will involve "new educational content on the website, webinars, opportunities to interact with GITA representation to bodies such as the GIS Certification Institute and National Geospatial Advisory Committee, exciting new research and best practice projects, and professional networking and discovery opportunities." 

But, the need for volunteers remains, in particular "to help with Awards, IT, Membership, Communications, Education, Governance, Finance, Research and Events Committees, including preparations for our 2013 Oil and Gas Conference."
