Last month saw a very successful Tasmanian Surveying and Spatial Conference held in Launceston at the Tramsheds Function centre. The YPs kicked the day off with a preconference breakfast at nearby café Blue Inc. To launch the formal proceedings, Jo Palmer, Member for Legislative Council, Division of Rosevears, gave the official opening to a crowded room of over 80 attendees. Thank you to all the presenters who then gave insightful and informative presentations around the conference theme of Modelling the Real Word: How do Citizens Win? While our interstate presenters unfortunately couldn’t be there in person, we were grateful for the time they took to record and deliver engaging presentations virtually. A big thank you to Michael Giudici, our conference convenor, and the rest of the SSSI organising committee for your fantastic work putting this together.
