The Association of American Geographers (AAG) joins the GIS Certification

December 6, 2004 - Park Ridge, Illinois - The Association of American Geographers (AAG) recently accepted the GIS Certification Institute's (GISCI) invitation to join the GISCI Board of Governors. This partnership helps to fulfill the goals of both organizations. This news follows the National States Geographic Information Council's (NSGIC) decision to join the GISCI Board of Governors earlier this month. This further expands the scope of GISCI and continues with its mission to make GISCI more inclusive in order to better meet the needs of the multidisciplinary GIS profession.

AAG has appointed Douglas Richardson, Executive Director of AAG to serve as their interim representative on the Board of Directors. "AAG accepts with pleasure the invitation to join the GISCI Board of Governors," announced Douglas Richardson. "(We) look forward to working together with GISCI and with the other organizations involved to help develop and sustain a strong and meaningful certification program."

"We are extremely pleased to have AAG's involvement on the GISCI Board of Governors," says Lynda Wayne, President of GISCI. "AAG and Doug's participation in GISCI will help establish a centralized voice for the GIS Professional community, promote the program and our shared commitment to a code of ethics."

The GISCI Board of Governors is comprised of geographic science and technology organizations that select representatives to serve on the GISCI Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is then comprised of individuals, elected by the Board of Governors, that serve as the governing body of GISCI. AAG, joins NSGIC and URISA on the Board of Governors.
