Message from the President
Dear WV GIS Community,
Hussein Elkhansa - WVAGP President
Hussein Elkhansa


I am pleased to inform you that our WVAGP membership has increased to 300 members, the largest it has ever been since our organization was chartered in 2007.  I attribute the increase to the training and other events that WVAGP has organized, along with the GIS communication networks that WVAGP has established to bring GIS professionals in West Virginia together.

I hope to see many of you at the WVAGP Annual Meeting  at Stonewall Jackson Resort on May 13-14, another excellent opportunity to learn about the latest geospatial activities in the Mountain State while networking with your colleagues.
WVAGP Sincerely,

Hussein Elkhansa, GISP
WVAGP President                                 Mapping the Mountain State
