Note to self: Find my way to get more involved with the AGI in 2015!

Today’s guest blog is by Diane Sandeman at the Association for Geographic Information (AGI). The AGI is the membership body for geographic information professionals. It is an independent organisation which promotes the use of GI and champions its value for the benefit of every individual, business and the economy. 


Already a quarter of the way through the year and I wonder how many of us even recall how many ‘New Year Resolutions’ we made?! Was 2015 the year you planned to become more active? Of course, being active isn’t all about the physical.

For those who want to extend their career or personal interests in 2015, being an active part of a community can bring a range of benefits. This can range from improved opportunities in the workplace, to the personal satisfaction of giving back and creating a great new network.  AGI Members often feed back that getting involved and actively engaging with their peers is one of the most valued benefits of their membership.

We spend our days scheduling work activities – why not take some time to plan those resolutions (personal or professional) into the calendar too? It’s never too late.

Here are some spring resolution opportunities (er, shamelessly self-promoting, sorry Ed.) you can plan in now:

The AGI operate with a small, very committed office team and big ambition. We want to continue our mission and ensure that we continue to deliver in driving the development of geographic information in the UK.

We value support from a wide range of volunteers, from our Council to our active groups, in addition to our Partners and Corporate Members. We would love you to come along and play your part. GI is shaping the future, and so can you.
