Workshop and Presentation Proposals Invited for #GIS/ValTech2020 in Louisville

Des Plaines, IL (May 7, 2019)  URISA and the  International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO) are pleased to announce the 2020 GIS/Valuation Technologies Conference in Louisville, Kentucky. Formerly known as GIS/CAMA, the event has been re-branded to take into account the abundance of technologies that, when integrated with GIS, make valuation and assessment more accurate, efficient and applicable for jurisdictions of all sizes.  

For more than twenty years, the organizations have hosted a conference to discuss the importance of data and the analysis of location information for better decision-making within a jurisdiction. #GIS/ValTech2020 will feature an exhibition, pre-conference training and workshops, keynote speakers and a substantial educational program which is developed through a review of proposals received.  The Conference Planning Committee is now inviting both workshop and presentation proposals.
