The President of the British Cartographic Society proposes establishing a forum for leaders of national cartographic societies. The forum would operate within the ICA, but be open to all national cartographic and geospatial information societies. We will discuss common issues such as membership retention and organisational change, and to share management expertise and build international links. An initial exploratory meeting is planned for ICC2017 in Washington, DC to which leaders of national mapping societies (i.e. presidents and/or their representatives) are invited. Membership of the forum will be open to any broadly national cartographic society and up to two senior representatives from any national society open to individual membership are welcome, regardless of their ICA membership status.
To register your interest in joining the forum, please contact Dr Alex Kent (President of the British Cartographic Society) via email.
