GIS-Pro 2020: URISA's 58th Annual Conference
We are nearly ready to share the program details and open up registration for our main educational event of the year, GIS-Pro 2020. We are staying true to our mission to provide professional education and training and a vibrant and connected community – albeit virtually this year.

The cost to participate – for attendees and our partners – has been significantly reduced in order to make it easier for you all to attend, without the added cost of travel and lodging.

URISA GIS Leadership Academy
Our inaugural virtual GIS Leadership Academy exceeded expectations.

The reviews are in:

“What a great experience! I think the virtual experience was very high quality and you should consider making this a permanent option.” 

"This is the best training I have ever taken and it was virtual......I HIGHLY RECOMMEND taking the virtual course when it is offered. The only thing you miss is shaking hands with everyone. The conversations that took place in the chat area during the presentation were great and great information was shared.....you would not get that in-person as much as we did."

"The highest value was the excellence of the instructors! Their ability to convey their experience and lessons-learned over their career were invaluable. Next were my fellow students, their participation and questions and experience were also invaluable. Great content, exercises, etc. Overall one of the best and most valuable trainings ever."

We will host another virtual GIS Leadership Academy in November and perhaps again in early 2021. Stay tuned for exact dates and registration opportunities. As expected, we did cancel the one remaining in-person GLA scheduled in St. Pete, Florida in November. We have three in-person Academies on the calendar in 2021.
Other Events
Seats are still available for tomorrow's free webinar: Best Practices in Creating and Managing Road Centerline and Site/Structure Address Points for NG9-1-1. More info and registration.

URISA's Corporate and Educational Institution Partners are actively developing virtual events and webinars to help you stay connected with trends and technology advances. Those events, in our Industry Calendar, are noted with URISA Partner tags.

Chapter educational opportunities are also regularly added to the calendar.
