Our Mission:

The mission of the URISA Emerging Professionals is to provide the emerging professional community with the resources to develop and maintain outstanding careers. Chief among these resources is interaction with industry leaders through mentorship, internship opportunities, and workshops. In addition, the group strives to share its knowledge of developing GIS technology and techniques with the broad geospatial community, industry professionals, and the public. 

Thank you for joining us for the EP's Fall Social!

On October 17th, 2018, the Emerging Professionals hosted a social at Old Town Pizza. Approximately 40 GIS professionals and students attended the event. OR-URISA EPs provided pizza and garlic knots for attendees.* The great turnout for the event demonstrates that emerging GIS professionals in the Portland-area are interested in building their community and growing their professional skills. Guided by input received from attendees, the EP leadership team is in the early stages of developing a mentorship program and other networking opportunities for the emerging GIS professional community.

*OR-URISA EPs used $157.25 of their annual budget to fund the event.
