URISA Accepting Registrations for Three Educational Programs

June 3, 2008 (Park Ridge, IL) - The Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA) is presenting three educational programs between now and October to meet the professional development needs of its multi-disciplinary membership. All of the volunteer committees for each conference are hard at work finalizing educational sessions that challenge participants and organizing events that strengthen professional networks. Registration is open and active for each program and all details about speakers, sessions, and exhibits/sponsorships are online at www.urisa.org

  • 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.

  • August 25-29, 2008 - 4th URISA Caribbean GIS Conference on Grand Cayman
    In its fourth year, this conference regularly attracts forward-thinking and accomplished GIS professionals in the region and provides quality educational programming and professional development opportunities. 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.

  • October 7-10, 2008 - URISA’s 46th Annual Conference in New Orleans
    Following two strong annual conferences (in Vancouver, BC and Washington, DC), the URISA 2008 conference committee has high hopes for another successful gathering in New Orleans. The conference will also include a charity event to assist in the renewal of the Crescent City. Make plans to attend today!
