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.
