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.

  • APAS2021 Conference Replaced by Webinar Series

    December 9, 2020

    Regretfully, the APAS Committee has decided to cancel the APAS2021 Conference.

    The primary reasons are to address the financial position for APAS and to remove the ongoing uncertainty in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic, which is making it very difficult to prepare for and successfully deliver a face-to-face conference in the way that we have all grown to appreciate over the years.

    Despite the recent announcements by the NSW Government regarding reduction of COVID-19 restrictions, a large number of uncertainties remain, and the volunteer committee finds itself in a very difficult position to offer a high-quality and safe event in the current environment.

    However we are very pleased to advise members that we will be holding another APAS Webinar Series in 2021 to provide a CPD opportunity, with further details to come in January.

    We humbly apologise for any inconvenience caused and appreciate your patience and understanding.

    Kind Regards,

    APAS Secretary
