Teams > Organizational Structure

The MetroGIS Policy Board, since it was created in January 1997, has provided policy direction for the MetroGIS organization. The Board is comprised of twelve elected/executive officials representing eleven key MetroGIS stakeholder organizations: each of the seven metropolitan counties, Association of Metropolitan Municipalities (AMM), Metropolitan Chapter of the Minnesota Association of Watershed Districts (MAWD), Technology Information Educational Services (TIES - school districts), and the Metropolitan Council. The governing body for each organization represented on the MetroGIS Policy Board formally endorsed the MetroGIS mission statement and appointed one of its members to serve on the Board.

A Coordinating Committee, comprised of approximately 25 managers and administrators from a cross section of interests and organizations, recommends courses of action to the Policy Board concerning design, implementation, and operation of MetroGIS. The Coordinating Committee is supported by the Technical Advisory Team. The Coordinating Committee and the Technical Advisory Team members are persons with broad expertise and perspective, including GIS and other relevant organizational policy, data access, data content, and data standards backgrounds. MetroGIS Operating Guidelines govern the responsibilities and composition of the Board and its supporting structure. (Additional advisory teams have been operative at various times during MetroGIS's evolution. Please see the Dissolved Teams page for more information about them.)
