What are the Big Issues in Geographic Information?

This is an important update, not my usual ramblings!

The ideas contributed by the AGI Showcase: North
As I have previously mentioned in the blog there are changes a-foot for our event programme for 2014. As we all celebrate 25 years of the AGI, it is a time to take a step back. Yes, we can reflect on all that we have achieved and how our industry has changed in this time – but more importantly it is a time to think about how we want it to move forward in the next 25 years. How can we (the AGI membership) shape the development of our industry?

In 2014, the AGI will host a number of Nationally Significant events around the UK. These will provide a focus for our members to debate the big issues in our industry, how are they impacting on our industry, how do we respond to these and where can AGI play a role to drive forward positive change.

We are looking to you, the AGI Membership, to tell us what you think these industry issues should be. We have had input from our Special Interest Groups, Regional Groups, through our event survey and at the AGI North Showcase event, but we want to make sure everyone has a chance to contribute.

There is a discussion open on the AGI LinkedIn Group, which we would encourage you to participate in. Alternatively, contact your SIG or Regional Group and express your thoughts and ideas.

2014 is a big year for AGI, more than ever this is a fantastic opportunity to have our collective voice heard, please get involved and help us develop our plans. The participation of our members is crucial for success in 2014 and into the future.
