After the first Council meeting of the year held last Friday, 20th January 2017, The Association for Geographic Information (AGI) is delighted to confirm and congratulate the elected members of its Council for 2017.
The Council is formed from elected members of the Association for Geographic Information, and its main role is to set the strategic direction for the organisation. To do this, members use their own knowledge and experience, as well as consulting with the wider membership. All Council members are also appointed as company directors of the AGI. The new Council Chair is Abigail Page (EuroGeographics). The remaining office bearers are: Vice Chair, Steven Eglinton (GeoEnable); Honorary Treasurer Duncan Hill (Europa Technologies) and Honorary Secretary Brad Fisher (Sopra Steria). Serving alongside these office-bearing roles will be newly elected members: Chris Chambers (Ordnance Survey), Jonathan Hardman (Ordnance Survey of Northern Ireland) and Peter ter Haar (Ter Haar Geoinnovation Ltd). These new members will complement the existing Council members: James Cutler (emapsite), David Henderson (Ordnance Survey), Lizzie Stutchbury (Informed Solutions), Dave Lovell, Matt Pennells (ConsultingWhere (Middle East)), and Andy Wells (Sterling Geo).
Taking up her position as Chair, Abigail Page said: “I’m honoured to be taking up the role of AGI Chair in what will be an exciting year ahead. During 2017 it’s important that as an organisation we continue to engage and focus our collective efforts on the key elements that make AGI a valuable part of our community and wider industry.”
She continued “I am delighted to welcome our new members to Council and see such enthusiasm in participating in the leadership activities of AGI. I am looking forward to working with our Council and our members to continue to transform AGI into a modern day membership association, with the benefit of their collective energy and experience.”
