The SCGIS conference annually marks the transition of the SCGIS Board year, and we offer a special thank you to Janet Nackoney, who has completed her three-year term as SCGIS President. SCGIS is in a better position today because of Janet's leadership to not only shepherd SCGIS through many of the recent challenges of our time, but to also continue building a strong foundation positioning the organization for future success.
We are excited to introduce Jason Winner as the new SCGIS president. Jason has served on the SCGIS Board of Directors for many years and most recently he has served as the SCGIS Treasurer for the past 4 years. Jason has been fortunate to connect with many members of the SCGIS community over time, and he looks forward to meeting others in the future! He is energized to explore the opportunities ahead and so thankful to work with a terrific leadership community that continually inspires him in their support of the SCGIS mission.
As we begin our 2021-2022 Board year, we want to recognize our two newest board members who were voted onto the SCGIS Board by our membership in August: Gabriel Daldegan and Angela Tarimy.
Additionally, we would like to thank Jocelyn Tutak (SCGIS Vice President), Li Ling Choo (SCGIS Treasurer), and Ellen Brown (SCGIS Secretary), who have agreed to stay on in their respective positions as SCGIS officers. Thanks also to our other SCGIS Board members: David Asbury, Rebecca Degagne, Zach Ferdaña, Mervyn Lotter, Janet Nackoney, Vivienne Sclater, Meg Southee, Stefan Stamenov, and *Nathan Walkerr; and to all of our community’s volunteers who continue to serve on our eight SCGIS Committees. As an all-volunteer organization, SCGIS relies on the dedicated work of our Board and Committees who make all programming possible. If you are interested in a volunteer role with SCGIS, please email president[at]scgis.org.
