WLIA Seeks Private Sector Representative for Wisconsin Land Information Council (WLIC)

The Wisconsin Land Information Council (WLIC),  attached to the Department of Administration (DOA),  is to serve an advisory role to DOA on matters relating to the Wisconsin Land Information Program(WLIP). The Council will consist of 12 members endorsed by their respective professional organizations and appointed by the DOA for three-year terms.

The DOA is relying on the WLIA to endorse a private sector geospatial professional candidate. This person can come from a wide variety of backgrounds and professions. Ideally, the person would meet the following criteria:

  • Be a member of the WLIA: The WLIA is a strong supporter of the WLIC and is committed to insuring the WLIC is a success. This person will communicate directly to the WLIA Board and membership. Many of the WLIC meetings will coincide with WLIA events.
  • Must work as a geospatial professional (not necessarily a GISP) in the private sector actively using Wisconsin land information. Candidates can range from consulting engineers, planners, application developers, etc. Sectors specifically named in the WLIC charter (realtor, utilities, land title/financial and surveyor) should seek endorsement through your respective organization.
  • Well informed of the Wisconsin Land Information Program.

If you are interested in serving on the council, send an email to Justin Conner (jconner@co.wood.wi.us) with the following two attachments:

  1. Completed DOA application form: http://www.doa.state.wi.us/Documents/DIR/Land_Information/Council/WLIC_Application_FINAL.pdf
  2. Document expressing your qualifications, why you are interested, and what makes you the best candidate to serve on the WLIC.

Documents MUST be emailed no later than July 26th. The WLIC Nominations Committee will promptly review and rank all applications on July 27th. The WLIA Board of Directors will vote on the endorsement before the August 7th DOA deadline.

Thank you for your consideration in serving the WLIC,
