US GIS organisation URISA is to offer its GIS Leadership Academy twice in 2017. Participants at the academies – which will be held in San Diego, California, between April 3-7, and in Providence, Rhode Island, between July 24-28 – learn:

• GIS leadership and management techniques

• Strategic planning

• Successful team development

• Organisational capacity building and sustainability strategies (ROI, innovative funding ideas)

• GIS programme investment and justification

• Change management

• Situation assessment and organisational performance evaluation

• Ethics and professional challenges

• Problem solving.

The academy is taught by proven leaders in the profession. Each course includes numerous interactive exercises, team-building tools and opportunities to delve into topics in a way you cannot do at a large conference.
