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. Not that class size is limited due to the interactive format of the ULA.
