To streamline multiple individual memberships from one agency or organization, URISA offers both a Government Agency and an Educational Institution membership, each detailed below.
Government Agency Membership
From local township to federal agencies, URISA is your professional GIS community!
Government agencies appreciate the opportunity to take advantage of this ‘enterprise’ membership which includes professional membership for GIS staff whether they are clustered in one department or are spread out across a number of departments (assessor’s office, public health, emergency management, planning, etc).
Instead of a complicated population-based scaled membership, we're simplifying. A government agency membership will (likely) include two individual memberships and additional individuals can be added at a discounted rate (normally $195). All members receive a subscription to the The GIS Professional and URISA Digest, discounts on registration for URISA professional education, training and events, ample opportunities for contributions, online community networking, and so much more.
A primary contact must be named with each government agency membership. New fee table under discussion - coming soon
Educational Institution Membership
URISA has long valued its relationships with the academic community. In fact, most of URISA’s founding members were esteemed faculty within urban planning departments.
Outreach to future GIS professionals at community colleges and universities is one of our most important responsibilities.
An Educational Institution Membership is available to faculty and staff at colleges and universities at a single location. This option includes individual membership benefits for two faculty members and up to ten (10) students for $400 (value of $550), with additional dues for an unlimited number of student members at only $10/each.
Another perk for Educational Institution members is access to the member mailing list to promote your degree program and an online promotional presence.
