I will be presenting at the upcoming Alabama URISA meeting being held on
March 30 in Tuscaloosa. I hope some of you might be able to attend. Please
feel free to pass this along to anyone that might be interested. You do earn
education points toward getting and maintaining your GISP certification.
Here are the details:


Where: Tuscaloosa City - Council Chambers - 2201 University Blvd, Tuscaloosa


When: March 30 - 10:00 to 12:00 CST


Topic: Moving Beyond the Technical - Skill For Professionals and Management


Most of us start our GIS careers editing date, doing analysis, managing
databases, and making maps. After a while, though, we get promoted to
management where we find ourselves dealing less with GIS and more with
people, projects, budgets, human resources, and many other challenges our
technical training has not prepared us for.


This presentation will provide some tips on how to handle some of these new
challenges you need as a manager as well as where to get help and training.
