|MAPPS Membership Categories|
MAPPS has several membership categories. The following are the base membership categories. Please read each category description and select the one that most accurately describes your firm.
Any firm having office(s) located in the United States of America and has a number of employees engaged in professional geospatial services profession may become a Regular Member by making written application to the MAPPS President accompanied by payment of one year's dues. "Engaged in the geospatial profession" means any firm that has as one of its purposes the creation, collection, dissemination or application of geo-referenced graphical or digital data to depict natural or manmade physical features, phenomena, or boundaries of the earth, geospatial intelligence, and any information related thereto, including any such data that comprises a survey, map, chart, geographic information system, remotely sensed satellite or aerial image or data.
Any firm engaged in the manufacturing and/or supplying of geospatial equipment, services, supplies, hardware or software, that supports but is not engaged in the geospatial profession, any firm not engaged in but with an interest in the geospatial field, and any firm meeting the definition of "engaged in the geospatial profession" whose office(s) is (are) located outside of the United States of America may become an Associate Member by making written application to the MAPPS President accompanied by payment of one year's dues.
The MAPPS Board of Directors have received feedback from Associate Members that an annual bundle membership package would be beneficial. Therefore, new in 2019, Associate Members can make a one-time contribution to MAPPS which includes discounted conference registrations, annual dues, and sponsorships. Also included in the Partner Program is a membership contribution to the new Ascent Program which provides support to the continued association management transition, and expenses needed to increase MAPPS visibility at trade-shows and within the geospatial community. A summary of the Ascent Membership Program can be downloaded here.
Any individual who would otherwise qualify for membership as a Regular or Associate Member, but is not affiliated with any firm that would qualify for membership as Regular or Associate Member, has no employees, is engaged in consulting in or to the geospatial profession, and provides a consulting service of interest to the geospatial profession.
Any individual who has been an officer of a firm which has been an active or associate member firm for at least the preceding five consecutive years, who has reached the age of 60 years, who has retired from such firm and is no longer engaged in a full time practice in the geospatial profession may become an Emeritus Member by making written application accompanied by payment of one year's dues. Aside from serving on the MAPPS Board of Directors, Emeritus Members have the same rights and privileges as Regular Members.
