Conference Testimonial: Eugene L. Rudy, LSSBB, City of St. Marys
GMIS is a platform for networking with peers, collaboration with sponsors, and industry relevant education, but four days of conference only opens the doors to a career of opportunity and solutions. I have been very fortunate to have great mentors and peers who have guided me, and so that I may guide others through their GMIS trek. I started in public sector in 2006, and my mentor, Jerry Cornish from Savannah, helped me transition into this area. Cooperation in GMIS is essential to any government organization, because it provides value for everyone.
In St. Marys, we have partnered with our fellow agencies on a law enforcement project that can reduce a large volume of redundancy and provide updated information quickly. Working with GMIS sponsors, we are making this project from concept a reality. It is a collaboration and concept that was first idealized at Georgia GMIS. This directly impacts our community and provides better support for our law enforcement agencies.
We all have the same problems; we just do it in different sizes and locations. GMIS is where you are most likely to find the answer.
