Description Agi, London
The AGI is an independent and balanced organisation, offering equal standing to every type of member. We’re not a trade body, a learned society or a policy influencer – but we engage in all and more. AGI is a member of the UK Location Council, an INSPIRE Spatial Data Interest Community (SDIC) and provides logistical and expert support to the British Standard's Committee for Geographic Information (IST36), amongst its many other activities. The AGI aim to bring you the latest industry and AGI news, information about AGI's many Special Interest Groups (SIGs), Regional Groups, our busy events programme, Continuing Professional Development (CPD), plus our highly acclaimed annual AGI GeoCommunity conference, which is the largest independent geospatial event in the UK.
'The Mission of the AGI is to maximise the use of geographic information (GI) for the benefit of the citizen, good governance and commerce.'
The AGI pursues these aims through a wide range of activities including lobbying, specialist meetings, seminars and other events throughout the country, a dynamic website, and a number of publications. These are all supported by our annual conference and trade exhibition; the leading GIS event for the UK.
Additionally, there are a number of special interest groups (SIGs) that provide services of particular relevance to members in specific sectors, as well as regional branches of the AGI in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The AGI is a mature organisation with a strong membership base and committed staff. In recent years it has achieved a level of financial stability that enables it now to look to future with more confidence, despite difficult economic conditions. This 2010 business plan, covering the period 2010-12 sets a long-term vision for the organisation based on the opportunities afforded by significant technology advances and wider awareness and cost-effective availability of geospatial information.
The externally focused aspects of the business plan are organised into objectives and actions under six headings:
Membership - our focus will be to attract members from new markets, particularly in the Business to Consumer (B2C) space, whilst re-doubling our efforts to ensure we remain relevant to our existing membership.
Services - we will look to revamp our events programme to spread it more evenly through the year and focus on the new directions in the industry. We will also evaluate the feasibility of launching new services to widen our income base.
Public Policy - we have an excellent platform to advance the influencing mission of the AGI through our membership of the UK Location Council (UKLC) and will seek to gain representation on all subsidiary bodies to the UKLC as they are formed.
