Chair report

TAS Regional Chair -  Paul Digney

Hi all! Well has been a busy start to the year for the Tasmanian Committee, with a strong focus on event organisation, particularly our two major events, the State of GIS later this month which is in the hands of the very capable Rob Driessen and also the State Surveying Conference which will be held in Launceston in mid September with a small working group set up to help organise.

We are also considering a number of smaller events throughout the year and have been in discussion with both Land Tasmania and the University of Tasmania regards collaboration around events and other activities.

Finally, as always, a call for you to get involved. The SSSI Tas Committee is a great group of people, and we have excellent sustaining partner support. We can always use more volunteers, though, especially from non-Hobart and non-male members! Get in touch if you’d like to help out, either in organising events, or simply being a voice of reason in the committee meetings.

I look forward to seeing you all at events throughout the year.

Tasmania Regional Chair
