Des Plaines, IL – URISA is pleased to announce that Marcus Z. Rouhani, Airport GIS Program Manager for the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, will provide the  Keynote Address at this year’s URISA Leadership Academy (ULA). The ULA will be presented in Baltimore, Maryland, June 14-18, 2010. 

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 important 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.  The environment further provides for productive collaboration and networking.

"I've been working in the GIS field for 15 years and this 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  

"The ULA provided a rare moment to bring some of the top leaders in the GIS field together to extend their experience with folks that truly believe in GIS and want to make a difference locally, regionally and maybe nationally in the future.  The broad knowledge base allowed the ULA to touch on every skill that is needed to make us leaders in our respective communities." - Chris Cantrell, GIS Coordinator, Midland County, Michigan  ULA Graduate, December 2009

The entire faculty of the ULA is comprised of Certified GIS Professionals (GISPs) with proven experience leading both public and private sector organizations of all types and sizes. Make plans to attend the ULA today. Participation is limited.
