CEO's Report September 2018


Peter Olah


SSSI’s annual Regional Conference season has kicked off, and our feedback from attendees at the Queensland Regional Conference two weeks ago was fantastic.

Our Regional Conferences are your opportunity to update your professional knowledge, exchange ideas across the whole surveying and spatial professional spectrum, and have fun with good company at the same time.

It’s not too late to register for the upcoming SSSI Regional Conferences and I strongly urge you to do so today:


In one of the first signs of change from our Strategic Roadmap process, I am pleased to point members to a new Body of Knowledge page on the SSSI website:

This now includes Members’ Only ECPD and details on the Journal of Spatial Science, which is also a benefit of SSSI Membership.

There will be many more additions to this page in coming months, and a lot of other good news arriving via our ambitious strategic program.

This is a slightly shorter column than usual for me, as I was away for two weeks since the last Geo Message to be with my mother in her final days.

I’d like to thank the many SSSI members whose offers of support and good wishes meant so much to me and to my family though a difficult period.
