A Message from our President

Reflecting back on the events of this past year, I am so incredibly proud of what the geospatial community has been able to accomplish despite the ongoing impacts of COVID-19. The resilience and increased reliance on the GIS profession and geospatial analytics can be felt far and wide. Many great things continue to happen with our organization as a result. I am pleased to share the following 2021 highlights:

  • We revised our By-laws and became a Chartered URISA Chapter
  • We were able to provide four free events with 804 total registrations
  • URISA membership continues to grow in our service area
  • Individual donations were up 168% from last year
  • We met all of our budgeted financial obligations and will finish the year cash positive

Now I am reaching out for your support of MAC URISA through a tax-deductible donation. Participation is what is important and you can signal your support of MAC URISA by making a gift of any amount meaningful for you. We would love to see 30 of our Members & Friends support us with a year end donation, recognizing the 30 years of educational and networking offerings that were only made possible through volunteer support. As a 501(c)(3), your donation makes a difference whether by enabling MAC URISA to host free virtual events, providing the resources necessary to support conference planning, or for ensuring business continuity during unprecedented times.

A special tax break available to most taxpayers, approved by Congress for the 2020 tax year as part of the pandemic relief program, was extended through 2021. Through the end of this year, you can take a deduction of up to $600 on your 2021 taxes, even if you don’t itemize. As always, please consult your tax advisor.

Thank you for a wonderful year, for your continued participation, and for your unwavering support. Our Board looks forward to being back in person with you all in 2022 and I believe that next year, MAC URISA can win URISA’s Outstanding Chapter Award. Have a happy and healthy holiday and New Years!


Justin Cusick
MAC URISA President
