"I am honored to be the recipient of the 2021 URISA Barbara Hirsch Special Service Award. I believe that giving back to the GIS and Geospatial community as a volunteer for URISA has left a mark on me, both personally and professionally. Seeing the good work that URISA does for our community has only furthered my desire to continue as a volunteer and to engage with as many GIS professionals as possible," Keri Brennan GeoComm Product Manager, Public Safety GIS Content and Services.
Beyond her involvement in URISA, Keri shares her vast knowledge of Public Safety GIS through presentations at various conferences hosted across the United States and Canada. At GeoComm Keri specializes in GeoComm Indoor Maps which involves understanding the obstacles public safety emergency personnel are facing as the industry begins moving to dispatchable location.
The Barbara Hirsch Special Service Award was created in 2004 to honor URISA's former Chief Financial Officer Barbara Hirsch who made her mark at URISA by being an exceptional professional who would always step forward, but never stepped to the front for recognition. It is in the spirit of this dedication that the Board of Directors created an award for special URISA service award.
