Committees & Working Groups
USGIF is governed by six committees with the Strategic Committee setting the direction of the other five. Members make up and direct these committees, with the exception of the Strategic Committee, which is led by the USGIF CEO and comprises only Strategic Member Partner representatives. These Committees make decisions regarding all USGIF events, as well as the Scholarship Program, Geospatial Certificate Program and Awards Program.
In addition to these committees, USGIF has several working groups made up of members for various needs and interests across the community.
Are you an employee of a USGIF Organizational Member? You are eligible to become a Volunteer Representative at no additional cost!
Volunteer Representatives are able to participate in USGIF Committees and Working Groups on behalf of their organization. In order to receive discounts to attend USGIF events or have access to members-only events, volunteer representatives must join as an individual member. Sign up as a volunteer representative or join as an individual member in the USGIF Online Store. For questions about joining a USGIF Working Group, please contact WorkingGroups@usgif.org.
Please Note: Volunteer Representatives must enroll using a work email address, as this email address will be used to verify employment with the USGIF Organizational Member. Additionally, Volunteer Representatives DO NOT receive membership benefits.
