MAPPS News on UAS Exemption, Federal Contracting and Nominations

Posted By Nick Palatiello, Thursday, June 5, 2014

Today, MAPPS is announcing it will host a webinar to review the Section 333 application process of the FAA Modernization Act of 2012 for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) for private sector geospatial firms and solicit interested MAPPS member firms that want to be part of the application.  Time, date and registration will be announced by email and on the MAPPS website shortly.

The ability for MAPPS to address this and other aviation related issues is due to the contributions of firms to our Aviation Legal Plan. MAPPS members are encouraged to make a minimum donation of $250 to participate in the Plan. Contribute online now

The MAPPS Summer Meeting is July 27-31 in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.  At the conference we will have a special “UAS Day” which is focus on the systems, sensors, data, application and regulations for UAS.  Don’t miss this unique opportunity. Register today!

On June 25, the Council on Federal Procurement of Architecture and Engineering Services, COFPAES, of which MAPPS is a member, will host an introductory webinar to Federal Contracting of Professional A/E, mapping and related services. If your firm is interested in expanding your business through Federal contracting, you will not want to miss this session. MAPPS members receive a discount registration of $49.00.  Register at

A final reminder, individuals who wish to be considered for election to the MAPPS Board can submit a statement of interest in writing to the chair of our Nominations, Pamela Nobles, by close of business Thursday, June 5. 

MAPPS continues to be an advocate for market growth and private sector geospatial firms.

In an economy where you are counting every dollar, it is good to know you can count on MAPPS.
