APAS ANNUAL CONFERENCE

APAS hosts an annual conference in the first half of each calendar year which is open to both members and non-members. The conference incorporates a theme each year and traditionally covers a wide range of topics relevant to the surveying and spatial information community. APAS posts the reports and proceedings on our website on our Conference Resources page.

The first annual APAS conference took place in Port Macquarie in 1995, following the inaugural conference held a year earlier in Goulburn. From then on, it incorporated the annual Staff Surveyors Association (SSA) conference which started way back in 1921. In order to support the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG) 24th International Congress in Sydney in 2010, APAS did not hold a conference that year.

GOVERNMENT SURVEYORS DINNER

The APAS calendar also includes a Government Surveyors Dinner in the second half of the year, including the Grant Kilpatrick Memorial Lecture.

Latest details of both events are available on our website as they become available.
