I’m looking to advance in the GIS field but not sure where to go from where I am.

- I’m 42 years old.
- I have an AA degree only.
- I work for a large Title Insurance company in a lower management position.
- I manage a team of about 10 employees in bringing counties’ historical land records (plat/condos) into an ARCGIS 9.2 database by creating all parcels from the first official recorded document to the most current.
- I am good with computers but not a programmer.
- I manage projects and the people involved.
- I want to get a degree in GIS but I am not sure how to go about it.
- I understand I will need to go back to school but it will have to be online or local.

Any suggestion would be most appreciated.
Thank you for your time.
