Mission

 

The mission of the Land Information Officers Network is to provide a forum for communication and knowledge sharing geared toward making county LIOs more successful in implementing the Wisconsin Land Information Program.

Bylaws

Preamble

A. Each of the 72 counties in Wisconsin has an appointed representative to conduct the business of the Wisconsin Land Information Program for his/her county. To best serve the taxpayers of Wisconsin and to promote the WLIP philosophy of sharing information resources, it behooves us to form an assemblage of those representatives. This state-wide organization, named Land Information Office Network (LION) is established to:

  • Educate each other and share innovation.
  • Enter into cooperative agreements to take advantage of large-scale savings.
  • Promote communication exchanges between counties, state and federal agencies.
  • Be a resource for the Wisconsin Land Information Program.
  • Aid in the advancement of the Wisconsin Land Records Modernization Program.

Membership

Membership consists of a Land Information Officer (LIO) from each county and/or a designated alternate.

Voting

Each county is entitled to one vote by the LIO or the designated alternate. Absentee ballots will be accepted via email from the LIO or the designated alternate.

Election of Officers

The Board of Directors shall govern the Land Information Officers Network (LION). The Board of Directors shall be comprised of the Chair, Chair Elect, immediate Past Chair, Secretary, and two at large LIOs.

The Chair Elect, Secretary, and the two at large LIOs shall be elected at large from the eligible membership at the annual WLIA Conference.

The Chair Elect is a three-year term: one year as Chair Elect, one year as Chair, and one year as Past Chair. The Secretary and the at large LIOs shall be elected for two-year terms with the terms of the at large LIOs ending in alternate years.

Meetings

Meetings of LION shall be in conjunction with the WLIA membership meetings. Meetings for the formulation of policies, receipt of reports and transactions of business shall be held annually at the WLIA Conference.

The Board of Directors may call special meetings of the organization at such time and place, as they may deem necessary.

Quorums

The affirmative vote of a majority of the delegates present and voting at any regular or called meeting shall be sufficient to carry any motion or resolution before the group, Board of Directors or in a committee.

Duties of Officers

The LION Chair shall preside at the Board of Directors Meetings, the Annual State Meeting and Regional Meetings. The Chair shall appoint all committees and designate the chair. All committee chairpersons and members shall serve at the discretion of the Chair.

  • Maintain an orderly and complete file system of all the minutes and related data of the organization.
  • Each year after the Annual State Meeting, the Secretary shall have the prior year’s file imaged and filed with the Wisconsin Office of Land Information Services. The secretary shall retain the paper files for the 5 most recent years.
