The CGSIC States and Local Government Subcommittee, chaired by the Federal Highways Administration, is conducting a meeting in downtown Seattle on the 14th of August. CGSIC is chartered to be an information portal direct from the U.S. government’s GPS Program to (and from) the world’s civil users of GPS. The Coast Guard’s Navigation Center is assigned responsibility as the operational arm and Executive Secretariat for the committee and assists the States and Local Government Subcommittee to bring this information to state government and private personnel who perhaps do not have travel budgets to attend our annual plenary meeting at ION. It is an opportunity to personally interact directly with the people that manage the GPS program. The meeting is free and open to all and will have a lot of information related to the GPS program that will make for a pretty interesting day.
