Our Purpose

Our Vision

Our vision is to see thriving consulting surveyor businesses in every region and city across New South Wales where surveyors are recognised for underpinning the value of the economy.

Our Mission

To be the leading voice of the surveying profession through advocacy and research, providing support to our member firms to build strong and thriving businesses through education ensuring the future and longevity of the surveying profession for the New South Wales economy. 

ACS NSW will be the premier consulting surveying state-based association in Australia increasing our membership to 250 firms by the end of 2022.

ACS NSW will have the resources to deliver excellence in services to our member firms and their staff.

Where are we now?

The Association of Consulting Surveyors NSW was established in 1969. We now have 180 member firms of the possible 400 surveying firms around New South Wales. Following 50 years of growth as an association, it is time to ensure the future and longevity of our industry and the Association.

Through the ACS NSW mission, we will see more students choosing surveying as a profession, increasing the number of consulting surveyors available for our member firms.  Our mission will ensure new surveying firms are established and current firms are expanding. Our mission will ensure our leading firms have a voice in the halls of government for the longevity of their organisations and the profession.

Where will be in 5 years?

Surveying will have been featured at least once on a major national television program.  Parents will understand the benefits of surveying and encourage their children to undertake tertiary qualifications in surveying.

ACS NSW as the leading business association for surveyors will have 300 member firms who are enjoying profitable businesses. ACS NSW will continue to be considered the expert in industry and trends which is evidenced by changes in legislation mandating the use of consulting surveyors. The Government defers to us for advice and opinion on all surveying and land matters.

As an Association we will have implemented management and governance best practice enjoying a financially stable position. We will continue to be governed by a dynamic and diverse Board.
