On July 27, 2011 Management Association for Private Photogrammetric Surveyors (MAPPS) awarded Mike Tully, Aerial Services’ President & CEO, with a MAPPS Presidential Award for creating a government cost-estimating tutorial on behalf of MAPPS. The document was created with the input and support of the Aerial Services team and a number of MAPPS partners.
“The President’s Award recognizes those who go above and beyond serving [MAPPS]. Each of these individuals has invested so much of their time and talent in the organization, and these awards are an expression of my personal gratitude,” said Jeff Lovin (Woolpert, Inc., Dayton, Ohio) outgoing MAPPS President who recognized the Presidential Award recipients.
Mr. Tully, along with other professionals at Aerial Services, provided their expertise to create the remote-sensing cost-estimating tutorial. It was a cooperative effort to bring together the collective wisdom of our profession on how different factors affect the cost of procuring professional geospatial services.
“I was honored to accept this award on behalf of the Aerial Services team. Our team’s expertise and long-term presence in the geospatial community along with related contributions of MAPPS members was what was really being awarded here,” explained Tully.
Mr. Tully was also re-elected to the MAPPS Board of Directors for a second term. He noted, “I’ve been pleased to serve our profession the last two years and look forward to continuing this company’s commitment to support the geospatial community via MAPPS.”
