Membership Criteria

APAS membership is open to all NSW Government employed surveying and spatial professionals, retired members, and students currently employed by the NSW Government (traineeships/cadetships/scholarships) as outlined in the current APAS Constitution.

Membership works on calendar years, so all new memberships extend to the end of the current year.

Associate membership is also available for those surveying and spatial professionals that were formally APAS members but transitioned out of Government employment by a privatisation process.

Please use our Enquiry Form for any membership enquiries.

Benefits of Membership

APAS members receive discounted rates to our major conference which offers a professional development opportunity and a networking forum for like-minded professionals.

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

Conference proceedings from past conferences are posted on the Resources page, which is publicly available in the interests of promoting professional development and high standards of education and safety within the surveying industry. 

APAS Constitution

The Constitution of APAS, as adopted by the current committee, includes full details of the objectives of the Association, the membership process for new members, plus details of membership crieria and more.

We encourage all members and potential members to read our Constitution.

  • APAS2022 - A Great Success!

    March 2022

    The APAS2022 conference was a great success with a noticeable buzz as we were finally able to reconnect in person after three years. It attracted 200 delegates (including 30 via the live stream) with 47% of delegates from private industry.

    Congratulations to Jonathon Smith (DCS Spatial Services) for winning the Keith Haddon Memorial Prize for the best conference paper with “Updating SCIMS with DEM-sourced AHD heights across NSW”.

    The conference proceedings are now available in the Resources section of this website.

    I would like to take this opportunity to again thank all presenters and our gala dinner speaker Dr Craig Roberts for contributing to a very interesting and diverse program. We very much appreciate your efforts because without you we wouldn’t be able to organise such a successful event every year.

    Next year’s conference, APAS2023, will be held in Coffs Harbour on 20-22 March 2023. Please consider volunteering yourself, a colleague or friend to present at APAS2023. To register your interest to present, please contact me. A call for abstracts will follow in due course.

    Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.

    Kind Regards,

    Dr Volker Janssen
