Best State Conference Yet!

With a mix of key NSW government Ministers and high-profile economic experts providing an outline of future plans and economic conditions in NSW, this year's State Conference provided the perfect blend of relevant information for managers and principals of surveying organisations.

The Hon. Rob Stokes (Minister for Planning) was integral to the program, as the imparting of his vision for NSW from a planning perspective was key information for surveying organisations.  So were the insights provided by the Hon. John Barilaro, who addressed delegates and their partners at the conference dinner at Parliament House in Sydney.

Business leaders and economic experts provided delegates with vital global and local foresights for the coming years. Stephen Halmarick, Head of Economic and Market Research for Colonial First State Global Asset Management, was this year’s key note speaker – directly addressing the economic outlook for the surveying profession.

From all accounts, the range of information presented at the conference is exactly what leaders in the Surveying profession needed to hear. 

Declaring this year’s conference as the best so far, Murray Learmont from CMS Surveyors commented that “The speakers were excellent and were very relevant to what we all cope with in our survey practices”.

Craig Turner, Chairman of ACS NSW, commented that the calibre of speakers and information presented at this event escalates each year, and that through the ongoing support of government Ministers, the conference continues to provide delegates with the opportunity to discuss important matters with key officials.

“It’s ideal to have a forum where we have the opportunity to sit down with the likes of the Hon John Barilaro and discuss issues that directly impact surveyors. This is how we protect the profession’s needs; both now and in the future”, Mr Turner said.

Minister for Corrections, Minister for Emergency Services and Minister for Veterans Affairs, the Hon. David Elliott, took the opportunity to announce the Surveying profession’s role in the $30 million dollar upgrade of the ANZAC memorial at Hyde Park. 

Mr Turner stated that ‘It’s vital for the Surveying community to continue our involvement in these types of high-profile projects. It helps highlight the importance of surveying, raise its overall profile and encourage future generations to take up surveying as a career”.
