The OGC Board of Directors of the Open Geospatial Consortium congratulate Dr. Nadine Alameh on her selection as the inaugural Executive Director of the Taylor Geospatial Institute.

As her final week with the Open Geospatial Consortium draws to a close, we know that we have greatly benefitted from her transformational leadership over the last 5 years and are committed to the ongoing process of modernization within the OGC.

OGC Members and Staff work on very comprehensive and high-impact activities in the areas of Defense and Intelligence, Climate and Disasters, Health, Smart Cities and Digital Twins, the Metaverse, and advanced technology domains including Space and Earth Observation or Cloud Native Geospatial.

As the board searches for a new Chief Executive Officer, the Board and Staff are committed to ensuring that our focus will be sharp, and our momentum will not slow. We will continue to develop geospatial standards and solve interoperability issues; and serve as the leading geospatial consortium by bringing individuals and organizations together from around the world to collaborate, innovate, and develop solutions to some of the world’s toughest data and technology issues.

The Board of the OGC has started to develop a transparent, objective, merit-based process for the next Chief Executive Officer of the Open Geospatial Consortium. Please check for any updates.

I look forward to seeing you at our in-person meetings, webinars, standard working groups, domain working groups, and at various high-level fora and research & innovation initiatives.
