URISA Activities at the Esri UC
It was a busy time for URISA during the Esri International User Conference in San Diego. Great seeing so many URISA members and friends!
had an impressive display in the Map Gallery and a well-attended session during the conference. So many GIS professionals are eager to volunteer to support GISCorps missions!
URISA's booth in the exhibit hall was really busy with people stopping by to ask about membership, conferences and programs. We hosted a Special Interest Group meeting this year and introduced URISA to the attendees. We held a drawing at the booth for free GIS-Pro 2012 registrations. The entries were abundant each day. Congratulations to the winners!

Our booth neighbor was GISCI
and there was a steady stream of traffic all week. Interest in obtaining the GISP credential continues to be strong!
Greg Babinski, URISA President, had a couple of presentations during the conference. The big news was the introduction of URISA's GIS Management Initiative
. Learn more and watch for much more news about this important undertaking.
Hope you're enjoying the summer!
