|News from the Office of GIS Coordination|
There are many GIS activities to report in the State:
|WVAGP & WVSPS - Allied Members|
WVAGP Board of Directors approved a resolution
that the WV Society of Professional Surveyors (WVSPS) become an allied member of WVAGP. As part of a reciprocal arrangement, the WVSPS has invited WVAGP to become an Institutional Affiliate
as defined by their current Constitution. The WVAGP board recently appointed Hussein Elkhansa to be the WVAGP Liaison Representative for the WVSPS. Sam Lammie was also appointed as an alternate. We are looking forward to continuing our collaboration with the WVSPS on issues of similar interest.
During the Annual Meeting in June the WVAGP membership passed a resolution that recognizes the GIS Certificate Institute (GISCI) as the organization capable of providing a complete certification program to the broad spectrum of GIS professionals in the West Virginia GIS community.
On 12 October 2011 the WV GIS Policy Council also passed a motion recognizing the GISCI's certification program.
