Wendy Peloquin Named URISA Young Professional of the Year

Des Plaines, Ill., Jan. 23, 2015—URISA is pleased to announce that Wendy Peloquin, GISP has been named URISA's Young Professional of the Year in recognition of her outstanding contributions as part of URISA's Vanguard Cabinet. Wendy is a Senior Geospatial Analyst at GISi in Jacksonville, Florida and is a Certified GIS Professional (GISP). She notes, "Serving on the Vanguard Cabinet was an invaluable experience. I appreciate the opportunity to work with not only other passionate young professionals, but also leaders within the GIS community."

An active and contributing member of numerous URISA committees and programs, Wendy leads a workgroup in URISA's Professional Practice Division and serves as the Associate Program Chair for GIS-Pro and NWGIS 2015 (October 18-22, 2015 in Spokane, Washington). She's also active locally in both the Georgia and Florida URISA Chapters.

The Vanguard Cabinet (VC) is a URISA initiative which debuted in 2011 to engage young GIS practitioners (35 and under), increase their numbers in the organization, and better understand the concerns facing these future leaders of the GIS community.  The Cabinet’s mission is to collaborate with URISA’s Board of Directors and Committees in creating and promoting programs and policies of benefit to young professionals. Comprised entirely of passionate young members selected from different geospatial disciplines, the Cabinet aims to position URISA as the center of opportunities for creative young professionals who are committed to improving URISA and the geospatial profession via innovation, collaboration, networking, and professional development.
