GIS-Pro 2012: URISA's 50th Annual Conference for GIS Professionals
will take place September 30 to October 4, 2012 at the Hilton Portland in Portland, Oregon!

Learn and Grow ~ Challenge and Inspire ~ Lead and Succeed

URISA is pleased to announce that this year's conference will be co-hosted by the Northwest GIS Users' Group.

URISA emanated from conferences held from 1963 through 1966. These events were known as the Annual Conference on Urban Planning Information Systems and Programs. URISA was formed in 1966 and the first URISA conference was held in 1967. Join us Portland to celebrate the 50th annual conference!

Whether you are an established or emerging GIS Professional, the GIS-Pro Conference is for you. Go beyond basic technology and applications and contemplate issues related to policy, information and technology management. Cover timely topics ranging from GIS Return on Investment (ROI) and server technology/cloud computing to business process reengineering and effective map communication.

Join your colleagues in the beautiful Pacific Northwest for an outstanding education program, networking opportunities and events designed to help you and your organization reach the next level of success!

For regular updates and conference details, visit this website frequently and follow the conference on twitter (#gispro). Hope to see you in Portland!
