Chair Report


Victoria Regional Chair - Andrej Mocicka

As you may know, National SSSI organised a Bushfire Recovery Map-a-thon that ran on Sunday 9 February across most states with participation in-person, online Australia-wide and as well as internationally. Due to overwhelming interest, another map-a-thon is planned for later in the year.

The Victorian Map-a-thon was warmly hosted by GHD and catering for the day was generously sponsored by Jacobs.  Thank you GHD and Jacobs! 

Fourty-three people registered to attend at GHD, 35 participated on the day and another 65 registered to join in remotely. Here are some photos of the map-a-thon day:



I look forward to seeing many of you at the upcoming Breakfast Seminar and the Hydrography Seminar. I would also like to take this opportunity to ask you to mark you diary for a Technical Seminar on Wednesday 18 March and a Twilight Seminar on 1 April. See more information in the Upcoming Events section below.
