Huntsville, US: Kecia M. Pierce, program manager for Intergraph’s utilities and communications unit, has been appointed to Geospatial Information & Technology Association’s (GITA) Board of Directors.
“The coming year will be a critical time for GITA as well as the geospatial industry,” said Bob Samborski, Executive Director at GITA. “We need to be responsive to changes in the industry and in our membership and I know that Kecia’s presence on our Board of Directors will add a great deal of industry knowledge and expertise, as well as a longstanding familiarity with GITA and its educational mission.”
“Intergraph and GITA share a strong commitment to using geospatial technology to address our serious infrastructure issues. Kecia will present her research on the benefits of utilising geospatial technology to implement vegetation management solutions at GITA’s Geospatial Solutions Conference, April 10-14, in Texas.”
Pierce has been involved with GITA since 1994 supporting conferences, technical sessions and continuing education seminars. She worked on the GITA Geospatial Solutions Conference planning committee from 2004 to 2009, and served as the conference co-chair for 2008 and the conference chair for 2009.
“The GITA association has always provided such unique opportunities for addressing all geospatial infrastructure aspects for those that design, build, own, maintain, operate, protect, and restore the world’s infrastructure – gas, water, wastewater, electric, pipeline, communications, and transportation,” said Pierce. “During such difficult economic times, I look forward to helping the association find new and innovative ways to get geospatial professionals involved and provide additional educational and technology advancement opportunities for those in the industries that we serve.”
