  • URISA Office Update - Remote

    The COVID-19 situation has significant consequences across all sectors of society. Aggressive and preventative measures are being taken to protect our individual and collective health. This is an unprecedented situation which requires many of us to adjust our normal practices.
     
    In an effort to protect the health and well-being of URISA staff, we will operate on a virtual basis beginning Tuesday, March 17. Rest assured, we are not suspending or closing operations. We will continue to serve you and conduct our business on a remote basis through April 30 and then reassess the situation.

    Be well.
