MAPPS will hold an interest meeting of private sector firms with offices or personnel in Florida to discuss the formation of a state chapter. 

MAPPS has successfully launched state chapters in Pennsylvania, Colorado, Georgia and Maryland. This has given the private geospatial community in general and MAPPS member firms in particular a stronger voice in their respective states. The purpose of the September 12 meeting is to discuss the organization of a similar effort in Florida.

Lunch will be provided by RIEGL USA.
