URISA Headquarters and Web Site Change

URISA, the association for GIS professionals, not only launched a new Web site in recent months but also moved its headquarters office. The organization is preparing for another busy year.

URISA's Web site,, now includes forums, blogs, RSS feeds, and significant resources for members. In addition, both conference registration and dues payment have become much more efficient through an e-commerce integration. Check it out!

Taking advantage of a surplus of commercial real estate in the Chicago, Illinois, area, the URISA staff recently moved into new office space in Des Plaines, Illinois. URISA had been in its previous space since 1997. The new office space is in a more modern building with lots of light and amenities, situated next to a Metra metropolitan rail stop. There is also a classroom in the building, where URISA will offer its Certified Workshops periodically throughout the year.

URISA has a full slate of educational programs on its agenda for 2010:

  • GIS/CAMA Technologies Conference—March 8–11, 2010, Little Rock, Arkansas USA
  • URISA/NENA Addressing Conference—August 16–18, 2010, Charlotte, North Carolina USA
  • URISA 2010 Annual Conference—September 28–October 1, 2010, Orlando, Florida USA
  • URISA's Fifth Caribbean GIS Conference—November 29–December 3, 2010, Trinidad
