Engaging the Community
The BayGeo Board is working towards building a more cohesive and collaborative community of geospatial professionals, those users of geospatial technology, and mapping enthusiasts. The Board has identified areas for soliciting community members to participate and guide BayGeo into the future.
The board, staff, and volunteer leaders typically hold monthly meetings; in-person meetings generally alternate month-to-month. In-person meetings are typically held on the second Monday of the month from 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM at our Oakland office.
Any current BayGeo member is welcome to join the monthly Leadership meeting. If you’d like to get more involved with BayGeo you are welcome to attend and become an Advisory Board Member. Advisory Board Members can participate in all Board meeting activities with the exception of voting on financial matters.
If you wish to attend a virtual meeting or to inquire about the next meeting location send an email to the President (hello[at]baygeo.org) information or for the conference code information. Members who attend three consecutive meetings are eligible to become voting members of the board when the next space becomes available.
