June 16-20, 2008 - URISA Leadership Academy in Chicago – GIS Leaders Teaching Leadership
The ULA, the only leadership training program of its type, is tailored to industry leaders and practitioners faced with unique challenges of GIS leadership and management and who want to make an impact leveraging the power of GIS. The ULA is not a standard conference. The topics are presented by GIS leaders in an informal and interactive manner…so you’re not just listening to presenter after presenter showing slides on a screen. The ULA is limited to 75 participants so you will develop strong professional relationships with your fellow attendees and with the instructors.

Well-known keynote speakers; an excellent variety of sessions ranging from copyright and privacy issues to disaster response; and meaningful social interaction are highlights of this program.
