Don’t you just love your city? County? Region? State? I’ve been participating in the MidAmerica GIS Consortium (MAGIC) for over fifteen years, representing all of those constituents. MAGIC helped me thread the needle to connect people to people in our geospatial communities.
I met the MAGIC leadership when I attended the National States Geographic Information Council (NSGIC) annual meeting in Park City, Utah in 2002. It was during that time with colleagues at NSGIC that my convictions regarding the significance of efforts to collaborate and move the issues of the geospatial community forward jelled and propelled me to remain engaged. I found a community of volunteers in MAGIC that was rich in a culture of collaboration and success.
Join us! You can make a tremendous difference in your region, giving back the knowledge that comes from collaborating with peers.
