Young Professionals Group


Developed in 2009, the USGIF Young Professionals Group (YPG) serves to unite junior GEOINT professionals within the Defense and Intelligence communities. This group, guided by the Young Professionals Working Group, offers events and programs that parallel the Foundation’s mission of advancing the geospatial intelligence tradecraft by utilizing the unique dynamics of our young professional membership based off of their needs and wants from this group.

The Young Professionals Group also holds two voting positions on the USGIF Board of Directors. These individuals serve for a two-year term and provide the Board with the perspective from a younger generation of GEOINT professionals.
