Busy Rest of the Year for URISA

Following its presence at Esri's International User Conference, the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association logo(URISA) is busy for the remainder of 2009. The long-standing Addressing Conference, which is cosponsored by the National Emergency Number Association, will take place August 4–6 in Providence, Rhode Island. Sessions will cover addressing basics, coordination, and standards; emergency response and 9-1-1; and case studies of GIS integration with public safety.

URISA's 47th Annual Conference & Exposition will be presented in Anaheim, California, September 29–October 2. Preconference workshops on topics ranging from Agile Project Management to Crime Mapping and Analysis will be popular with attendees. Your peers from around the world will present within these program tracks:

  • GIS for Best-Managed Communities
  • GIS for Growing Communities
  • GIS for Safe Communities
  • GIS for Educated Communities
  • GIS for Healthy Communities
  • Professional Development & GIS Leadership

The conference merges important educational content with exhibits, networking events, and interactive discussions, along with recognition of the 2009 inductees into URISA's GIS Hall of Fame.

URISA and the University of South Florida's National Center for Transit Research at the Center for Urban Transportation Research will present the 2009 GIS in Transit Conference in St. Petersburg, Florida, November 16–18. Asset management, transit operations, service planning, and federal programs and priorities are just a few of the topics that will be discussed during this event.

Last, but certainly not least, URISA's Leadership Academy (ULA) will be presented in Seattle, Washington, December 7–11. ULA is five days of targeted GIS leadership training, taught by GIS leaders. There have been nearly 140 graduates of the program so far; plan to add your name to the list this December!
