Image result for election bunting


Unlike the 2016 Presidential race (open at your own risk – barely safe for work!!!), the number of people running in the Central Cal URISA Board elections is minimal.  While we might be able to entice the castoffs from the national race to run for office on our board, we would like to encourage those of greater integrity in our local  area to run.

If you would like to run for our board or nominate someone, please submit the name and a short bio by email to by November 10.  Elections will take place online and in person at the GIS day events.

Open Positions

Vice – President  – 3 year term: VP (2017) – President (2018) – Past President(2019)
