Agency membership in GMIS International is open to public sector agencies or jurisdictions at any level of government (federal, state, county, city, etc.), including schools (K-20) and special districts. Each agency member organization designates one person to serve as the organization’s voting representative. Other individuals within the agency member’s organization may participate in GMIS activities at the stated rates for members. If an individual moves or transfers to another organization, they may maintain GMIS International membership only if the new organization is also a GMIS International member in good standing.
