URISA’s Vanguard Cabinet Introduces Mentoring Program

URISA’s Vanguard Cabinet, a team of young professional members of URISA, has launched a new mentoring program for GIS professionals. Anyone in the GIS industry who feels they would benefit from a mentor, or would like to volunteer their time to a mentee, is asked to fill out a brief survey to facilitate the matching process at http://www.urisa.org/about-us/vanguard-cabinet/
 
This new program is the first step in a mentoring platform for GIS professionals which will provide mentors and mentees with additional resources and tools to support these relationships. URISA is dedicated to building strong professional networks and the Vanguard Cabinet bridges the transition for those new to the industry into a professional career.
 
The Vanguard Cabinet is a URISA initiative (which debuted in 2011) to engage young GIS practitioners, increase their numbers in the organization, and better understand the concerns facing these future leaders of the GIS community.  Comprised entirely of passionate young members selected from different geospatial disciplines, the Cabinet aims to position URISA as the center of opportunities for creative young professionals who are committed to improving URISA and the geospatial profession via innovation, collaboration, networking, and professional development. 
 
If you have any questions, please contact the mentoring committee at mentoring@urisa.org.
