The Outreach Committee exists to support both state-level and national projects and events that raise awareness of the AmericaView Consortium’s efforts in all aspects of our mission. For example, our members provide formal presentations on the role of their StateView consortia and the national consortium at state, regional, and national meetings and conferences. Our members also distribute StateView and national ‘Fact Sheets’ to potential partners, local and state government agencies such as planning councils and state departments of natural resources, and federal agencies and government officials. The committee is chaired by Mary O’Neill of South Dakota State University and PI of South DakotaView. Specifically, the Outreach Committee provides a forum for:
- Fact Sheet development;
- Development of brochures and other public relations media;
- Support of formal presentations to geospatial user groups and potential partners;
- Support for StateView consortium development.
