NJ-GMIS is member-driven. Given the number and types of government agencies and the state’s geography, NJ-GMIS develops, grows, and is driven by cross-fertilization, facilitating and supporting the interests of its membership.

Structurally, the group maintains organizational sections (state, county, municipal, and public school), and special interest groups (i.e., GIS, network security, e-mail management), and holds membership meetings by region without regard to type of agency.

Since NJ-GMIS is a technology organization, we use technology to foster communication with and among members. A ListServ, websites, newsletters, chat rooms, and periodic in-person meetings, are all used for member communication: The goal of the association: With communication comes knowledge, and opportunities for sharing, cost savings, and efficiency.

Any municipality, board of education, county or state government agency can join. Each organization names one contact person to represent it for organizational support purposes. Any employee of the agency may attend NJ-GMIS educational activities and meetings.

To join NJ-GMIS, your agency joins GMIS International. This structure provides members with the resources of an international network of technology leaders and all the services of the full organization, as well as connecting to your in-state peers. By joining GMIS International, you automatically become a member of the New Jersey Chapter.
