2013 - Quick Start to the New Year
The activity level at URISA has ramped up quickly after the new year! Committees are busy working on programs and plans; the URISA Board is working on a committee/division reorganization to capitalize on our volunteer resources; and Chapters are busy and already hosting events locally. Keri Brennan, GISP has joined the URISA staff as Education Manager to improve and expand our educational offerings.

So much going on! Keep an eye out for URISA announcements and opportunities to get involved and connect with your fellow members.

Make 2013 the year you contribute to your profession (earn GISP points and share your ideas and energy). Submit an abstract for presentation at a conference; contribute articles for THE GIS Professional; volunteer on GISCorps projects; join your local chapter...

Looking forward to working with you!

Wendy Nelson
Executive Director, URISA
