September 30, 2018

Please find below information on what is happening at the Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute Victoria as at October 2018.



Lindsay Perry

Your Regional Committee, has met on a number of occasions during the month finalising arrangements for our Annual Surveying and Spatial Summit on Friday October 5th. By the time this is bulletin published, we hope that everyone received some personal benefit from the day.

A number of Victorian Region members recently attend the Tasmanian Region Summit at Launceston, some made presentations, but everyone enjoyed making new connections with our near neighbours. Some Tasmanian members also attended our Summit and we encourage members to continue to support each regions events in the feature. Sharing issues and experiences with members in other regions is something that narrow focussed state bodies cannot provide.
The SSSI Annual General Meeting was also held in conjunction with the Conference. in Launceston.  Dr Zaffar  took over the role of national President from Gabriel Van Wyk who concluded a highly successful term as President. Paul Digby from Tasmania was appointed as President Elect.
Copies of the SSSI Annual Report are available on the website and hard copies were available at the Surveying & Spatial Summit. The SSSI Strategic Roadmap 2018-2021 was recently released and our CEO Peter Olah spoke about it at our summit.  If you missed the summit and want to catch up on SSSI activities, please take the time to view the documents on the SSSI website.
Make a date in your diary now for our Remote Measurement Day on Friday November 16th, the APSEA-Vic Awards on Wednesday December 5th and our end of year event for members on Tuesday December 11th.  The Victoria Region committee will be holding a planning day on Saturday December 1st to devise a program of activities for 2019.  We welcome any input and suggestions from members, so please don’t hesitate to contact our Regional Operations Manager Su Ling Meimaris  at with any suggestions you may have for member events and activitiers.
