CURISA and its members pride themselves on being part of the larger GIS community in the Carolinas. We endorse policy that creates structure to the industry and we support initiatives and organizations that advance the GIS profession. To do this CURISA maintains partnerships with organizations such as:

The Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA)URISA is our parent organization and is considered to be a premier organization for the use and integration of spatial information technology. Our chapter works closely with URISA to coordinate events, observe industry trends and monitor policy in the Carolinas. urisa logo
The Geographic Information Systems Certification Institute (GISCI)URISA has been an advocate of the GIS Professional (GISP) designation and fully supports the need to promote it and further its recognition throughout the industry and beyond. Many of our members are GISPs and would be happy to assist others in the application process.  GISCI
