The Association for Geographic Information (AGI) announces the resignation of Chris Holcroft as Chief Executive and Director of the Association.
On behalf of the AGI Council, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Chris on his successful application to the role of Chief Executive for the Royal Meteorological Society. I would also like to thank Chris for his dedication, commitment and hard work to both the organisation and industry at large.
Chris will remain with the AGI until the middle of October and in the meantime is fully committed to helping achieve what will undoubtedly be another great AGI GeoCommunity conference.
The Association intends to appoint an interim Chief Executive to provide continuity in our membership service and work, while we undertake the recruitment process to seek a long term replacement. We expect to be able to announce the interim Chief Executive appointment within the next 2-3 weeks.
During Chris’s six years as Chief Executive he has, in partnership with the AGI team and AGI Council, ensured that AGI has strengthened its reputation as the leading professional organisation for the GI industry and a respected voice within government and beyond. The AGI will continue to provide wide-ranging benefits for our members and uphold its mission to maximise the use of geographic information for the benefit of the citizen, good governance and commerce. The AGI Council looks forward to working with our new Chief Executive, along with our members, our volunteers and our regional and special interest groups, towards building upon past success and ensuring a bright future for our organisation and industry.
