Welcome from the 2017 Chair

Posted By Scott Freburg, Board Chair, Wednesday, February 8, 2017

Welcome!!

As incoming Board Chair, I am very excited for what ALL of us can accomplish in 2017! After two years as your at-large representative and one year as chair-elect, I have witnessed the amazing work accomplished by Consortium Board members, committee members and all of YOU on a weekly basis. As outgoing chair Tami Maddio stated in the previous e-announcement, 2016 was a year to remember. I would like to publicly “Thank” those Board members who are moving on to their “real jobs.” Thank you Heather Albrecht (3 years) and Brandon Tourtelotte (2 years) for your contributions to the Board of Directors, networking events, workshops and our annual conference. You have both made a difference with your ideas and comments. I would also like to acknowledge the contributions of Mark Kotz. He has been a longtime chair of the Awards committee and is stepping down to concentrate on other things. Mark has been instrumental in events and conferences for many years.

We have a number of exciting events lined up for 2017, from networking events like curling to our annual Spring Workshops and finally to our 2017 annual conference at a new location, Bemidji (October 4-6). Your Board of Directors will be working diligently on your behalf and we always welcome comments and suggestions. Volunteering opportunities are available with MN GIS/LIS committees. Please contact us at volunteers@mngislis.org to get involved. 

Scott Freburg

Your 2017 Consortium Board Chair
