URISA has taken a historic step forward in adopting the blueprint for the OneURISA Model.  The blueprint is the result of several years of hard work by the URISA Chapter Advisory Board and their OneURISA Committee.

What is OneURISA?  First and foremost, OneURISA provides many benefits to indivual members, chapters and URISA International.  A key feature of OneURISA is that it provides the structure that empowers all our members, chapter members and international members alike, by making them part of the same organization.
