NEFGIS 2013 Election Results

posted Apr 15, 2013, 7:10 AM by NEF GIS   [ updated Apr 15, 2013, 7:37 AM ]

We would like to thank everyone who was able to attend yesterday's NEFGIS user group meeting in Clay County. The turnout for the meeting might have been the largest the group has ever seen! We would also like to send a special Thank you to our presenters, Troy Nagle - Clay County and Kevin Shortelle - SDI, Inc.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, we would like to thank our lunch sponsor, Jones Edmunds.

It was great to see the support the members of NEFGIS have shown through our new election process. The membership clearly believes in the group and is interested in volunteering to help take the group to the next level. We had nine applications for three open positions on the NEFGIS Board. Both the quantity and quality of the applicants were excellent!

NEFGIS would like to congratulate the new Board Members! We look forward to a continued commitment to serving the needs of the Northeast Florida GIS community!
Here are the results:
Vice-Chair - Corey Bowens, St. John's County
