iCERT Representatives on NG9-1-1 GIS Project:
Hello iCERT Members.
We wanted to circle back with everyone and provide you an update regarding iCERT’s participation in the GIS project being led by the National 911 Program office.
In early December 2021, we asked iCERT member companies to submit names of individuals who would be willing to represent iCERT on a new GIS project team being led by the National 911 Program office. Thank you to all those individuals that responded. We received nominations from a number of very qualified candidates, and it is good to know that iCERT is supported by so many GIS and NG911 experts.
After careful consideration, we have selected Jeff Ledbetter (DataMark) to fill iCERT’s GIS seat and Sam Bard (Motorola Solutions) to fill iCERT’s NGCS seat. I am confident that these two individuals will do an excellent job in representing the industry’s interests on this important project.
In order to provide Jeff and Sam with support and to facilitate their coordination with the broader iCERT membership, iCERT will be establishing a new GIS Working Group under the Policy Committee. Jeff and Sam will co-chair that WG.
If you, or others in your organization (an iCERT Member), would like to participate in that WG, please reach out to Jeff and Sam by January 14, 2022. They can be reached via email at Jeff.Ledbetter@mbakerintl.com and Sam.Bard@motorolasolutions.com. Thank you in advance for your support of this important initiative.
