How to Join

Associate Membership

Associate Membership is the entry level mechanism through which an interested institution or developing state consortia may begin participating in AmericaView. Associate membership carries no annual funding benefits, although Associates are entitled to a variety of other privileges and benefits, and agree to participate in various activities and to support the goals of AmericaView in their states. All StateView consortia must be an Associate Member before applying for Full Membership.

What Are the Benefits of Associate Membership?

AmericaView is a national consortium whose members have access to the resources and expertise of all participants. This could mean data sharing between states and/or sharing of programming code, applications, educational resources, and grant opportunities. Associates also have access to AV outreach resources, and receive timely – and often advance – notice of changes in national policy directives affecting the geospatial community.

New associate StateView programs are accepted throughout the year. Applications are reviewed by AmericaView staff for completeness. Correspondence between staff and an applicant follows if more information is needed or must be clarified. The applications are then reviewed by the AmericaView Board of Directors and any additional questions are directed to the applicants. When the Board gives approval to recommend the vetted applicant(s), the application is then placed before the voting membership for decision by majority vote.

For more information about Associate Membership, please review the “Application for Associate Membership”. Please feel free to contact us with any further questions.

Full Membership

Full Members have full voting privileges, and receive base funding from AmericaView in the form of annual grants. Grants are annually renewable, contingent upon satisfactory performance. State consortia that have been Associates of AmericaView for one year may apply for Full Membership through an annual request for proposal opportunity if funding is available. State consortia with successful proposals are granted Full Membership if funding is available. Associate Members are moved to Full Membership status in order of being added to the queue, and as additional baseline funding becomes available.
