If you’ve been wanting to try out a membership with URISA (Urban and Regional Information Systems Association) but haven’t because of the normal $175 annual member dues, URISA has a deal for you. For a limited time, URISA is offering a $20 initial membership fee for the rest of the year. The $20 gets you full membership benefits which includes the publications URISA Journal and The GIS Professional, conference discounts, as well as access to their online publications library.

From the announcement:
Last December, the URISA Board of Directors decided to reach out to GIS professionals who had not previously been URISA members and offer them a significantly discounted membership opportunity. So far, more than 500 individuals have taken advantage of the offer to join URISA for $20. In addition to the URISA Digest and THE GIS PROFESSIONAL newsletter, members also receive the peer-reviewed URISA Journal, discounts on conference registration (including GIS-Pro 2011) and other educational events like URISA Connect webinars and workshops.
