The Surveying & Spatial Sciences Institute has held its Annual General Meeting in Launceston, Tasmania, appointing a new president and a number of board directors.

Richard Syme was appointed as a new director in Victoria, and Lee Hellen was elected by a ballot of Queensland SSSI members as a new board member from the state.

Rob Sarib was elected as a new director to the board from the Northern Territory, and Wayne Patterson elected to fill a casual vacancy in New South Wales.

During the Annual General Meeting, Dr. Zaffar Sadiq Mohamed-Ghouse was elected as the new president of SSSI Australia, stepping into the role held by Gaby van Wyk for the past two years. Paul Digney was chosen by the board as president-elect.

Congratulating members on their new positions, SSSI CEO Peter Olah thanked outgoing president Gaby van Wyk for his service.

“I welcome Zaffar and look forward to working with him to build a stronger, better SSSI. The board subsequently elected Paul Digney as president elect, and I offer Paul my congratulations and support,” he said.

“I’d like to thank our immediate past president, Gaby van Wyk, for all his hard work over the last two years. His dedication has ensured that SSSI will continue to grow and benefit from his legacy.”

Directors of the new SSSI board can be viewed at their website, and the annual report for 2017/2018 can be found here [pdf].
