Over the past few months SSSI and SIBA|GITA have continued discussions about the potential for merging both organisations. Both Boards have met independently as well as jointly to ensure our values are aligned and priorities compatible.
Our overarching consideration has always been:
- how can we provide the best value to our members and the greater geospatial sector?
- how can we as the representative groups for individuals and companies most effectively champion change?
- how can we reform within our industry which is undergoing rapid growth and advancing technology?
Both Boards believe merging SSSI and SIBA|GITA is an effective strategy for organisational growth, gaining scale efficiencies and enhancing services and reach for the spatial and surveying related sectors across Australia.
All member updates regarding the proposed merger can be found on our dedicated webpage - Merger
