Chair's message


First up there is some exciting news to share this geomessage. We have a newly formed Young Professionals (YPs) Regional Committee in Tasmania. The group of enthusiastic YP’s recently held their first committee meeting and are planning their first event in late July. The Committee will organise local YP events and build a valuable supportive network for students and those professionals who are early on in their career. Great work team!

Speaking of great work, have you or your team been doing some, or do you know an outstanding achiever? The Asia-Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards (APSEA) awards are now open for nominations. The awards celebrate the achievements of top surveying and spatial information enterprises and individuals, showcasing the finest projects and most significant performance of professionals the industry has to offer.  Nominating for an award is an excellent way of recognising the outstanding work we do for our organisations and raising awareness of our industry. Please consider nominating those around you or self-nominating. Click here for all the details

A big thanks to all who came along to the State of GIS Seminar on May 12th and thank you to all the wonderful presenters. There was an outstanding line up of topics and the event was a great success, with a full capacity of 80 attendees in person and an extra 30 attendees virtually. If you missed it, you can access the recording on SSSI eCPD web page.

Also coming up is the SSSI TasWater Seminar on Thursday 15 July. SSSI Tasmania is pleased to partner with TasWater to present this full day seminar in Launceston. This seminar will provide the opportunity for both TasWater and industry to delve deeper into technical and policy issues that affect TasWater operations and land development processes. An event not to be missed! 

Finally, don’t forget to put September 3rd in your diary for the annual Tasmanian Surveying and Spatial Conference. We are planning to hold the event in Launceston this year and more details will come in the next couple of months.

If you have any questions or would like to get involved with the SSSI, please reach out.
