What is the Board of Directors?
An 11-member group elected by the WVAGP membership to actively pursue the association’s mission to bring together and build the geospatial community into a cohesive, recognized coordinating body that facilitates the use, development, sharing, and management of geospatial data, and communicates the value of geospatial information to citizens and decision-makers.

What does a board member do?
Attend a monthly virtual meeting to discuss and vote on association affairs and participate in committee service such as conference planning, scheduling GIS training courses, communication and outreach, organizing elections, strategic planning, and more. The membership term lasts from July 1, 2024 to June 30, 2026.

Didn’t we just do this last year?
Yes! In order to keep the WVAGP leadership dynamic and engaged, elections are open for five members in odd-numbered years and six members in even-numbered years. Our association values new voices and perspectives, and welcomes the nomination of anyone with an interest to get involved.

What’s in it for me?
Board membership is a great way to serve the GIS community in West Virginia and help make the WVAGP the best that it can be. And if you’re working on your GISP certification, board service earns points towards your portfolio!

Questions or feedback may be submitted in the Elections Feedback Form.

Additionally, the WV GeoCon Program Committee would like to remind all members that registration is now open for WV GeoCon 2024! Early Bird Registration ends April 15, click here to learn more!
