URISA Announces Advanced GIS Leadership Academy

by | Feb 26, 2024

URISA’s GIS Leadership Academy (GLA) has been presented regularly since 2007. Nearly 2,000 individuals have attended over the years. Some have attended two or even three times as their circumstances (a new employer or promotion perhaps) have changed.

Regularly receiving five-star reviews from attendees, the training program has grown through word-of-mouth recommendations and some organizations include the GLA as a key part of their staff development and retention plans. The GLA will be hosted three times this year:

  • June 3-7, 2024 in Seattle, Washington
  • November 18-22, 2024 in Fort Worth, Texas
  • December 2-6, 2024 – virtually

After much discussion and planning, URISA is pleased to introduce the Advanced GIS Leadership Academy (AGLA) designed for those who have attended the GLA and are ready for more. The inaugural AGLA will be hosted in Chicago, August 12-16, 2024.

As in the GLA, instructors, all GISPs, are experienced GIS professionals who have successfully navigated the challenges of increased leadership and management responsibilities in a technical field. They are veteran GLA faculty members who have continued to advance in their careers and are passionate about supporting the community.

Attendance at the AGLA earns substantial GISP® Education Points. Many GLA graduates have been waiting for this opportunity and we expect to reach capacity quickly.

Early bird registration discounts are available for this training program through May 15. For details, including an agenda, an online registration form, and hotel/venue information, visit https://urisa.org/page/URISA_AdvancedGLA
