The current plan breaks down the directives of the board into five priorities for the three years planned from 2017-2019;
1. Strengthen ILGISA's financial standing
2. Grow membership
3. Provide relevant and up to date educational opportunities
4. Raise GIS awareness throughout state
5. Continually improve membership value
Within each of these priorities, there are goals and “rocks” or actions that the board has been actively perusing. Under the leadership of our executive director, each year the board has done a fantastic job addressing these tasks as well as moving forward with the priorities. It’s a compliment to CM Services that, though board membership changes each year, direction has not wavered in its purpose.
Next Month, we will seat a new board that will be rewriting the strategic plan for 2020-2022. This survey will assist that board with understanding the needs of the ENTIRE GIS community in Illinois. Every other year we survey our membership (around 500 geogeeks) with an in-depth questionnaire that is analyzed and poured over by the membership committee. That survey is specific to active members. However, this time we are asking all GIS professionals, users, hobbyists, retirees, interns, students, professors or anyone remotely involved in the community to assist us in crafting the next three years and beyond. The survey is short but written to be a great resource to guide these important discussions.
