GIS-Pro 2020: A Virtual Experience

We've got one more contract amendment to sign ... and then we'll be moving full speed ahead for a virtual GIS-Pro 2020. A working group of volunteers has already been meeting regularly to discuss pivoting to a virtual event and we're busy with details, platforms, and content. 
 
The program committee is curating educational content to highlight today's most important topics, including Equity & Social Justice; GIS in Health; GIS Leadership & Management; and Community Resilience. Stay tuned for the comprehensive agenda! 

Keynote speakers, workshops, breakout sessions, and a solutions marketplace will be featured, along with networking events and opportunities to connect. 
 
We will be going to Baltimore for GIS-Pro 2021 and it will be great to see you all in person!

Preliminary Schedule:

  • Virtual URISA workshops will take place on September 23 & 24 and October 6 & 7. 
  • Keynote addresses, breakout sessions, partner-sponsored sessions, and special interest group meetings will take place on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday (September 29-October 2).

  • A Virtual Marketplace will provide access with solutions providers

  • Networking at the Virtual "Hotel Lounge" and opportunities to connect, engage, and collaborate will be plentiful.

GIS-Pro 2019 took place September 28-October 2, 2019 in New Orleans, Louisiana. 

Huge thank you to the conference committee (led by John Nolte, Ashley Hitt, and Judy Colby-George), our sponsors, exhibitors, speakers, instructors and all of the participants who collectively made #GISPro2019 a memorable and valuable conference. 

We cannot thank Louisiana URISA enough for their enthusiasm and commitment to making #GISPro2019 an incredible event. We'll come back anytime you want us!!! Truly!


URISA was thrilled to partner with the California Geographic Information Association (CGIA) and the four California URISA Chapters  - SoCal, NorCal, CentralCal and BayGEO - to present GIS-Pro & CalGIS 2018 in Palm Springs! Those five California-based geospatial organizations typically collaborate to present CalGIS each spring, an event that has a long history (nearly 25 years!) of educational and community-building excellence.  

Instead of two separate meetings, we collaborated on one geospatial super-event and it was fantastic!

Thank you to our Southeast Chapters (Florida, Georgia and Carolina URISA) for their support!

 

 

 

 

Thank you to our Canadian Chapters (URISA Ontario, URISA Alberta, and URISA British Columbia) for their support! 

URISA and the Northwest GIS User Group were proud to present GIS-Pro & NWGIS 2015, October 18-22, 2015 in Spokane, Washington, in cooperation with the Northern Rockies and Washington URISA Chapters. Nearly 450 GIS professionals attended the conference. There was a lot of interaction and discussion and excellent reviews of the educational program. A very positive conference experience!  What a fabulous conference!
