URISA GIS Leadership Academy

June 13 thru 17, 2011

St. Louis Missouri

February 14, 2011 (Des Plaines, IL) - The URISA Leadership Academy (ULA)
will take place June 13-17, 2011 in St. Louis, Missouri. The deadline to
take advantage of discounted registration is March 1. Registrants can
save $200 if registered by March 1.

Why attend the ULA? The success of any GIS program is largely tied to
the capabilities of its leader.  Strong leadership is necessary to
establish a solid GIS program, operate efficiently and effectively,
coordinate participants, adapt to change, and move a program forward.
Leadership, however, is a skill that must be developed. The URISA
Leadership Academy was established to meet this need.  At the Academy,
participants learn key GIS leadership and management factors and
techniques, successful team development, organizational capacity
building, program investment and justification, GIS politics, change
management, situation assessment, and problem solving. 

"I've been working in the GIS field for 15 years and the ULA was, by
far, the most valuable and comprehensive training I have received. No
matter how much you think you know about GIS management, you will learn
more than you ever thought possible." - Scott A Weisman, GISP, GIS
Technical Services Manager, Tallahassee Leon County GIS - ULA Graduate,
December 2009 

Attend the ULA and explore GIS Leadership, comprehensively, with your
peers. Note that class size is limited due to the interactive format of
the ULA.
