Non-profit representation added to MetroGIS Coordinating Committee

Two new representatives were appointed to the MetroGIS Coordinating Committee in March: Jessica Horning, Greater Minneapolis Day Care Association, and Sally Wakefield, 1000 Friends of Minnesota. MetroGIS is a collaboration of government, academic, non-profit, and for-profit interests that serve the seven county Minneapolis St. Paul Metropolitan Area. The primary focus of MetroGIS efforts is to oversee implementation of sustainable regional solutions to common geospatial information needs and related technology. The Coordinating Committee's purpose is to advise the MetroGIS Policy Board on matters concerning the implementation and operation of MetroGIS.

You can find more information about MetroGIS at and specifically about the MetroGIS Coordinating Committee here:

Both Jessica and Sally recognize the potential for stronger collaboration between non-profit organizations and the MetroGIS community and hope to strengthen those relationships through service on the committee.
