GIS-Pro 2017: THE Conference for GIS Professionals


URISA is hosting its 55th Annual Conference in Jacksonville, Florida this October.

The conference educational content celebrates exemplary applications of technology for emergency response, addressing, public health, transportation, economic development, land records, etc. Participants will also share best practices for GIS management and leadership, professional development, certification, and much more. Watch for a special program track focused on preparing for the GISP Exam. (You asked, and we're going to deliver!)

In addition to ample GISP credit, we typically apply for and are approved for well over 40 AICP-CM credits. 


Get ready for JAX!
