Des Plaines, IL, August 31, 2017 -- URISA is pleased to announce the results of its 2017 URISA Board of Directors' election. Kim McDonough will serve in the position of President-Elect and Lynn Dupont, Glenn O'Grady and Bryan Townsend  will serve as Directors. They will all begin their three-year terms at the conclusion of GIS-Pro 2017 in Jacksonville, Florida this October.

"I am extremely humbled to have been chosen to help lead this great organization that has been such a vital part of my professional and personal for almost 30 years. My degree is not in GIS, so much of my success in the field is because I have been exposed to some of the giants in the industry through URISA. We are now entering into a new phase of our history as we move to a new organizational structure that will enable us to be even more effective as a leader going into the future. We will need to all work closely together to make this successful, so I will really need everyone's help. I look forward to what the future holds for our profession and URISA and I look forward to serving as your president in another year!"  -  Kim H. McDonough, GISP, Senior IT Manager, Tennessee Department of Transportation, Nashville, Tennessee
