Board

The Council consists of representatives from federal, state, county, regional and local governments, colleges and universities, and the private sector. The IGIC consists of twenty-five Board Members that represent each of the functional sectors.

As a member driven organization, IGIC relies heavily on the support of its membership in accomplishing its mission and objectives. Even if you are not a member of the Board, IGIC needs your interest and support. Consider contacting us with your ideas on how to make the organization better adapted to fulfilling the needs of Iowa’s GIS community.
