2017 URISA Board Election Results Announced

Published Thursday, August 31, 2017

URISA is pleased to announce the results of its 2017 URISA Board of Directors’ election. Kim McDonough will serve in the position of President-Elect and Lynn Dupont, Glenn O'Grady and Bryan Townsend  will serve as Directors. They will all begin their three-year terms at the conclusion of GIS-Pro 2017 in Jacksonville, Florida this October.

“I am extremely humbled to have been chosen to help lead this great organization that has been such a vital part of my professional and personal for almost 30 years. My degree is not in GIS, so much of my success in the field is because I have been exposed to some of the giants in the industry through URISA. We are now entering into a new phase of our history as we move to a new organizational structure that will enable us to be even more effective as a leader going into the future. We will need to all work closely together to make this successful, so I will really need everyone’s help. I look forward to what the future holds for our profession and URISA and I look forward to serving as your president in another year!"

- President-Elect:  Kim H. McDonough, GISP, Senior IT Manager, Tennessee Department of Transportation, Nashville, TN

Kim will serve as President-Elect for one year and his term as President will begin at the conclusion of the 2018 conference in Palm Springs, California.
