The American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) is the American Planning Association’s (APA) professional institute and provides the only nationwide, independent verification of planners’ qualifications. Certified planners pledge to uphold high standards of practice, ethics, and professional conduct, and to keep their skills sharp and up to date by continuously pursuing advanced professional education. The Certification Maintenance program links AICP-certified planners to education and training opportunities so they may earn mandatory credits and remain current with the latest trends, technologies, and best practices
URISA is an AICP-approved Certification Maintenance (CM) provider and is pleased to offer ample CM credits for planners who attend GIS-Pro & CalGIS 2018 in Palm Springs, California this October. A total of 90.5 CM credits (about twice as many as previous events) were approved for the program this year in Palm Springs, ranging from 8.5 CM credits for full-day workshops to 1.5 credits for attending the opening keynote address from Jack Dangermond, founder of Esri.

This event also earns ample Education points toward GISP initial certification and renewal. In addition, presenting at the event earns Contribution points, as does serving as a volunteer on the planning committee.
