Bob Irvin, Village Manager of Lincolnshire and I will be presenting
as apart of the educational series at the International City Managers
Association (ICMA) 2010 annual conference on October 17-20th.
The intent of the session is to offer an in-depth look at how a small
group of local governments in the Chicago metropolitan area created a
geographic information system (GIS) consortium. Panelists will highlight
the benefits of sharing resources and outline how they worked together
to develop a comprehensive GIS service. Attendees will learn about the
consortium development process and governance, as well as the uses and
benefits of GIS.
