URISA Announces 2017 GIS Professional Educational Calendar

Des Plaines, IL - With one more major event still to take place in Toronto this year ( GIS-Pro 2016: URISA's 54th Annual Conference, October 31-November 3, 2016), URISA is pleased to announce a number of programs for 2017.

The education begins March 6-9, 2017 in Chattanooga, Tennessee for the 21st GIS/CAMA Technologies Conference, presented in partnership with the International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO). This conference assists assessment and appraisal professionals in visualizing how they can work more effectively through the use of technology. This conference explores the important role that the integration of Geographic Information System (GIS) and Computer Assisted Mass Appraisal (CAMA) systems plays in providing access to data and analysis of information for better decision making within a jurisdiction. The conference features workshops, keynote addresses, ample breakout sessions and a busy exhibition.

URISA's GIS Leadership Academy will take place in Providence, Rhode Island during the week of July 24-28, 2017. (Note that a second ULA will likely be scheduled in the Spring of 2017 in southern California.)
