From Eric creighton, ILGISA President:
ILGISA has a busy year ahead, with Regional Meetings in full swing, several ad-hoc committee’s and initiatives that support the growth of GIS within the state, and the annual ILGISA conference this fall. That change of an officer role set in motion a series of others. Chad Sperry was appointed as the President-Elect by the board for the remainder of the calendar year. Filling Chad’s position of Treasurer is Jason Verachtert. That fulfillment left a ILGISA Board Member position vacant and was unanimously filled by the board with Seth Stark, the GIS Administrator for the City of Decatur, Illinois. We are very pleased that Seth has accepted the role and are very excited for his contributions to come. Many changes have occurred in these past months, nonetheless ILGISA’s focus and goal to advance GIS in the state of Illinois remains intact.
