    WAURISA is taking all developments concerning the coronavirus (COVID19) very seriously and will continue to closely monitor the situation. As of March 11th, Governor Jay Inslee instituted a ban on large gatherings and events of 250 people or more in King, Pierce, and Snohomish Counties for the remainder of March. Unless the ban is extended on large events into April and May, WAURISA has no plans to postpone or cancel the Washington GIS Conference scheduled May 18-21st at the Hotel Murano. 

    If the event is cancelled or postponed due to an extended ban our policy will be to issue full refunds to all participants. Health and safety are of the utmost importance to us so we will continue to keep you updated as we gain more information regarding measures taken to keep our members safe. We will update this message with any new developments or information.

    WAURISA’s annual Washington GIS Conference is a well-established annual event attended by an average of 300 professionals and students in the geospatial industry. This event has grown beyond our capacity to manage solely with volunteers, so, for the third year the WAURISA board is looking to pay a Conference Coordinator to assist in the planning and organizing of the event.

    The primary role of the conference coordinator is to work with all the conference subcommittee leads and the WAURISA Board Conference Liaison to facilitate collaborative decisions and logistics for the 2020 WA GIS Conference.

    Conference Coordinator contract and scope of work can be viewed here:


    We will be accepting letters of interest until July 25, 2019  

    If you are interested in being considered for the Conference Coordinator position please send a letter of interest and CV to:  president@waurisa.org
