Representatives of several counties have come together to create an organization to help provide and foster encouragement, communication, education, assistance, technical knowledge and cooperation to county employees responsible for the implementation, use and/or maintenance of technology within their organization or department.
The purpose of this organization is to promote professionalism, cooperation, mutual assistance and sharing of experiences; committed to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, information, and technology as they relate to county government activities and legislation; and formed for the benefit of participating county technology representatives.
A formal committee to establish the organization first met on August 3, 2001. The organization was formed, by approval of those attending the meeting held November 14th, 2001 at the ISAC Fall School, when the by-laws were adopted at that meeting.
Membership is extended to any employee of any County agency in the State of Iowa and may include, but is not limited to, personnel with the following job responsibilities: Information Technology, Geographic Information Systems, Mapping, Internet Technology, Networking, Telecommunications, or anyone who has technological duties.
Dues are set by the Executive Board. They are due annually in July, and cover membership for 1 year from July through June. There is not a prorated amount for partial years. Currently, dues are $50.00 per person.
