Forums are communities within MAPPS that address issues affecting firms, their products and services, and markets. Each member firm of MAPPS should select at least one forum. Forums not only meet at MAPPS conferences, but host occasional conference calls, organize webinars, and engage in communications using the features provided through the MAPPS web site outside of and during time period between MAPPS conferences. Forums provide members an even greater sense of "belonging” and add value to being a member firm in MAPPS. Forums are a way for members to share and gain information and knowledge, network, solve problems, and work with their peers to improve their business and contribute to the well being of the geospatial profession at and apart from attendance at MAPPS meetings and conferences.
