About the Technical Subcommittee
The Technical Committee identifies emerging trends and serves as a collection point for technical aspects that demonstrate true interoperability from common community standards. The Technical Committee directly supports and plans many activities at USGIF events, including portions of the GEOINT Symposium, GEOINT Community Week, Denver Technical Workshop, and more. The Technical Committee also oversees the Interoperability Outreach Subcommittee and the Emerging Technologies Subcommittee.

In this role, co-chairs are responsible for helping to continue to build the Foundation’s technical programs and maintain a commitment to serving the entire GEOINT Community as part of the portfolio of USGIF programs. It is estimated that this role can take up to 10% of a person’s time, particularly in preparation for the GEOINT Symposium and GEOINT Community Week.

About the Tradecraft & Professional Development Committee
The Tradecraft and Professional Development Committee discusses and implements ways to assess the needs for GEOINT professionals to support government, industry, and academia. This committee determines the basic and advanced qualifications for GEOINT professionals and assesses the education and training programs, which prepares individuals’ advancement in the GEOINT field. This committee works very closely with the Technical and Academic committees.

In this role, co-chairs are responsible for working on Professional GEOINT Certification issues, developing key tradecraft topics for the GEOINT Symposium and GEOINT Community Week, and advising USGIF Members and staff on relevant professional development trends and activities.
