URISA Election Results Announced

July 21, 2008 (PARK RIDGE, IL) - URISA is pleased to announce the results of its 2008 Board of Directors Election. Kathrine Cargo, GISP (New Orleans Parish Communications District) will become President-Elect of the association and Clare Brown, GISP, Michael Lovett, GISP and Karen Stewart, GISP will begin their three-year terms as members of the Board of Directors, at the close of URISA's 46th Annual Conference in New Orleans this October.

“URISA means professional growth, as I feel that my participation in conferences, committees and chapter functions better prepared me to recognize challenges as opportunities for improvement. URISA has been and continues to be a great source of inspiration to me in my work as a GIS/Mapping Coordinator, mainly due to the GIS educational offerings and the industry information that streams from the association on a regular basis,” said Cargo.

Three new directors were elected by the URISA membership to serve a three-year term on the URISA Board, also beginning in October. The three new Board members are:

  • Clare Brown, GISP, Montgomery Watson Harza, New Orleans, Louisiana
  • Michael Lovett, GISP, CDM, Maitland, Florida
  • Karen Stewart, GISP, ESRI Canada, Vancouver, British Columbia

At the close of URISA 2008 in New Orleans, the terms of service for these Board members will conclude:

  • Ed Wells, GISP (Immediate Past President), GIS Manager, Washington Metro Area Transit Authority, Washington, DC
  • Ingrid Bruce, GIS/Special Districts Manager, City of Rancho Cucamonga, California
  • Zhong-Ren Peng, PhD, Professor, University of Florida Department of Urban and Regional Planning, Gainesville, Florida
  • Cy Smith, GISP, Statewide GIS Coordinator, State of Oregon, Salem, Oregon

We thank them, in advance, for their dedication and service to URISA and anticipate many more years of continued involvement.
