As we move toward a more geospatially conscious society, location becomes increasingly important. In turn, the discipline of geospatial intelligence, or GEOINT, has moved to the forefront of the technological revolution and is growing at an exponential rate. The United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) and its Members recognize these facts. USGIF is the premier foundation working to build a community of interest between government, military, industry, professional organizations and academia who share this realization. If you or your organization is interested to contribute to the GEOINT community through the improvement of GEOINT technologies and practices, we welcome your participation in the foundation.
There are many benefits which will accompany your USGIF Membership. As a Member, Individuals and Sustaining Members’ employees will have the ability to participate in USGIF’s Committees. In this capacity, you will have a direct say in the shaping of the GEOINT community, as well as the development of USGIF events. The networking opportunities presented by participation in our committees are endless, as you will have access to GEOINT professionals from a variety of backgrounds. An important benefit to note for both Individual and Sustaining Members is access to member-only events, like the USGIF Tech Days, Hill Events and the NGA West Showcase.
Members also receive direct financial benefits. Both Individual and Sustaining Members receive discounts on conference registrations and educational courses. Sustaining Members receive complimentary GEOINT Symposium full registrations as well as discounts toward additional registrations, exhibit booth space, and advertising. Sustaining Members’ financial contributions are noted and rewarded through USGIF’s Priority Points system (LINK) for booth selection and sponsorship opportunities. Additionally, your company will receive unprecedented exposure to academia, industry and government agencies supporting GEOINT. This is largely done through USGIF’s marketing of your company on our website, on event signage, on the ‘Got Geoint?’ blog, and through our official publication, trajectory.
