The Wisconsin Land Information Association Board voted unanimously to appoint Jeremiah Erickson its next president. Jeremiah will start in that role immediately and fill the remainder of Tony Van Der Wielen’s unexpired term.
Jeremiah is the GIS Specialist/LIO for Monroe County, attended his first WLIA conference in 2001 and just completed a term on the WLIA Board where he chaired the Communications Committee. Previously he twice served as the Wisconsin Real Property Listers Association President and has also chaired the Land Information Officer’s Network. When asked about WLIA, Jeremiah said “I made it my professional goal to someday lead this great organization.” A fellow board member described Jeremiah as, “one of the most thoughtful, level-headed, fair people I’ve encountered on the board. He thinks things through from all angles, and gladly listens to and considers opinions that counter his own. His quiet but strong passion for the state and land records community was immediately obvious.”
