MAPPS Transition Status and Other News

Season’s Greetings MAPPS members.

The MAPPS Board of Directors and I would like to provide you another update on how the organization transition and other items are proceeding. Below are a few items that the Board and various committees are diligently working:

  • Several weeks ago I announced that MAPPS signed a short-term agreement for basic association management and conference support with the Stringfellow Management Group (SMG). I am now thrilled to introduce our members to Diane Schafer, CMP who will be managing the 2018 Winter Meeting and Federal Programs Conference.  Some of you may know Diane when she managed the NSGIC conferences for 12 years. Over the next 4 months you will be seeing Diane and her staff at our conferences and receiving correspondence from her. Diane can be reached at, or using the MAPPS phone number (703) 787-6996, ext. 108.
  • As we transition to a new association management approach on January 1st, the MAPPS telephone number, website, FaceBook and other social media will remain the same. However, the mailing address will change to: MAPPS, 9 Newport Drive, Suite 200, Forest Hill, MD 21050
  • High-value speakers and presentations for the upcoming Winter Meeting program are being finalized by Mike Tully’s Programs Committee. Highlighting the program are presentations on Civil Integrated Management (CIM), autonomous vehicles, data quality inspection, QBS, emergency management, ground penetrating radar, etc. Several federal agencies will also attend providing insight to their upcoming programs and contracts. Please register today for the conference and hotel as our room block date is creeping up.
  • Some of you may have received what appears to be random MAPPS Forum Posts. It seems the system is automatically generating these and we are working to determine the source of the problem


Please be checking your email for more information as other exciting MAPPS business is announced.

On behalf of your MAPPS Board of Directors


Brian Raber, CMS, GISP, GLS

MAPPS President
