SIBA has announced three new members elected to its board, as well as the results of the NSW Spatial Excellence awards, hosted in conjunction with SSSI last week at the SSSI NSW Regional Conference in Bowral.

SIBA conducted its annual Board elections over the past month to fill three vacant positions that arose out of the rotation that occurs each year. There were seven outstanding nominations for the Board this year.

Those successful and now joining the board are newcomers Lynette Terrett from RapidMap in Victoria, Alistair Byrom from Goodwin Midson in Queensland, and Ralph Croker from Jacobs’ Queensland office.

“The election of these three outstanding candidates to the SIBA Board is a great result as they all represent the growing influence of contemporary aspects of the spatial industries,” said SIBA Chairman, The Hon Gary Nairn.

“SIBA’s Board represents the diversity that is the spatial industries. Directors have expertise in surveying, mapping, GIS, economics, environment, property, large and small business, employment, engineering, consulting and remote sensing and now defence is amongst others,” said Mr Nairn.

The new Directors will take up their positions at the conclusion of the SIBA Annual General Meeting to be held in Queensland on the 18th November 2014.
