Northern & Central Groups
Our regional groups were formed to provide services to spatial professionals living from Mackay north and west to the Northern Territory border (Northern Group), and from Gympie to Gladstone and west (Central Group). However spatial professionals from anywhere in the State are welcome to participate in Northern & Central Group activities, including conferences, meetings, and other professional development events.
The Northern Group Conference is held annually in Townsville, Cairns or Mackay. The Central Group Conference rotates around key centres such as Bundaberg, Hervey Bay, Gladstone and Rockhampton. In 2020, a joint Central and Northern Group conference is currently being planned.
The SSSI Northern and Central Groups are recognised by the SSSI as a Queensland Region sub-group with representation on the Queensland Regional Committee (QRC).
