Washington Local Government GIS Leaders (WGGL)

 

WGGL Chair

A Washington Special Interest Group

The WGGL group was formed to provide a forum specifically for GIS leaders in local government. Membership of WGGL is comprised of GIS Supervisors (Managers, Coordinators, Directors, and Department Heads) working at City and County organizations in Washington State. The group acknowledges that leadership is not conferred by (nor constrained to) a job title, but comes from all across the GIS and government enterprises.  The WGGL group promotes: open collaboration to help solve uniquely government problems, active participation, sharing insights and resources, growing leadership skills, and improving overall communication among GIS leaders across the State of Washington. 

 

WGGL Membership

  • Open to all government City and County GIS leaders
  • Requires WA URISA membership for full access to resources
  • Membership managed in Wild Apricot
  • No additional WGGL membership fee (beyond WA URISA membership)
  • Paid attendance at any WA URISA event, work shop or conference confers WA URISA membership, and thus grants eligibility to WGGL membership (as long as the person is a “leader” in their organization)
  • Vetting of WGGL members (if questions arise) by WGGL Coordinating Group
  • Vendors need not apply

Our current agreed goals:

    • Create a communication link between local government GIS leaders;
    • Determine and share best management practices;
    • The representation of County and City GIS interests to state officials, calling attention to legislation that affects data processing operations and technologies; and
    • Opportunities to provide education/training for City and County GIS managers on roles, responsibilities, and requirements of GIS departments
