URISA announced the results of its 2004 Board of Directors Election. Cindy Domenico will become President-Elect of the association and Eric Bohard, Shoreh Elhami, and Allen Ibaugh will begin their three-year terms as members of the Board of Directors, at the close of URISA's 42nd Annual Conference in Reno, Nevada this November.

Cindy Domenico has served as the assessor of Boulder County, Colorado, since 1997, and has been a member of the assessor's office appraisal staff for twenty years. The development of Boulder County's GIS and implementations of the technology for appraisal analysis have been a focus of her work. The National Association of Counties, the Denver Regional Council of Governments, and the International Association of Assessing Officers have recognized Cindy and her staff as innovators in GIS and exemplary systems in local government.

She has been an active URISA member since 1993. She served on the Board of Directors from 2000-2003 and was the treasurer during this time. Among many other volunteer activities, Cindy has been a frequent presenter and moderator at URISA conferences and has been particularly instrumental in the success of the Integrating GIS & CAMA Conference, the annual event jointly sponsored by the IAAO.
