Nominations for the 2021 regional ASPEA awards will be open soon! Keep an eye on the APSEA website and think about nominating yourself or your colleagues. It is such a great way to get recognition and raise the profile of spatial in your organisation.
I hope those of you who had the opportunity to attend Locate21 were impressed by the line up of quality speakers and presentations on offer. The hybrid delivery method was helpful in ensuring all presentations were accessible and enabling delegates to go back and watch some that may have been missed due to concurrent sessions. Well done to Locate Conference organisers for successfully pivoting to a hybrid-virtual model after the sudden lockdown in Brisbane.
Speaking of events, planning is underway for the State of GIS and we are hoping to put together an interesting line up of local speakers and offer the chance to get together to catch up and network in person. Register for this event or even consider submitting an abstract - all the details can be found on the SSSI website.
And a reminder there is a huge library of webinars available on the SSSI website free of charge to members. It is a great resource to catch up on some you may have missed.
