24th Annual GIS/Valuation Technologies Conference - Cancelled
March 13, 2020: In recognition of the growing health risks worldwide posed by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and decisions by governments and businesses to curtail activities, it is with great regret that we inform you that IAAO and URISA have decided to cancel the 2020 GIS/Valuation Technologies Conference, scheduled to take place March 23-26, 2020 in Louisville Kentucky.
The health and safety of our members, attendees, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors is our top priority. We believe that, given the current situation, cancelling this event is for the overall benefit of all parties involved.
With concurrence of the IAAO President Amy Rasmussen, RES, AAS, FIAAO and URISA President Keri Brennan, GISP we are operating out of an abundance of caution after reviewing guidance from the CDC, and getting input from members who raised concerns about being absent from their communities during this crisis. This has been a very difficult decision and we would like to thank all our partners, sponsors, exhibitors and participants for their understanding at this time.
We greatly appreciate all of the speakers who had offered to share knowledge with the community. We were looking forward to your presentations and will follow up with future opportunities. Sponsors/exhibitors, we will also look forward to discussing opportunities to connect with IAAO and URISA members. Thank you for your support.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to our participants and partners. Our sympathies go to those who are affected with COVID-19 around the world. Don't hesitate to contact us with immediate concerns.
Stay well, follow recommendations to self-distance and #flattenthecurve.
On March 18, conference registrants were emailed instructions for transferring their registration to next year's conference in New Orleans or requesting a refund. If for some reason you did not receive that email, it is included below:
We were all looking forward to the 2020 GIS/Valuation Technologies Conference in Louisville and appreciate all of the support from attendees, the planning committee, speakers, and of course, our generous sponsors. The decision to cancel the conference was difficult but necessary in order to protect the health and safety of participants and staff.
In order to facilitate registration requests, we need your assistance. We need each attendee to let us know whether they wish to transfer their paid 2020 registration to next year's conference in New Orleans (March 15-18, 2021) or if you wish to receive a refund.
Each attendee must fill out this form
Since we couldn't meet in person, GIS/ValTech sponsors and exhibitors want to connect with you virtually. This space will be updated as learning experiences are developed and connection details are specified. In the meantime... mark your calendars:

About the Conference
Formerly known as the GIS/CAMA Conference, we've re-branded to take into account the abundance of technologies that, when integrated with GIS, make valuation and assessment more accurate, efficient and applicable for jurisdictions of all sizes.
The Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA) and the International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO) partner each year to discuss the importance of data and the analysis of location information for better decision-making within a jurisdiction.
The International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO) is a non-profit research and educational association. Established in 1934, IAAO's mission is to promote innovation and excellence in property appraisal as well as property tax policy and administration through professional development, education, research and technical assistance.
URISA is a multi-disciplinary geospatial organization that provides professional education and training, a vibrant and connected community, advocacy for geospatial challenges and issues, and essential resources. URISA fosters excellence in GIS and engages geospatial professionals throughout their careers.
