It is a pleasure to bring you an update on the activities of GANS, the Geomatics Association of Nova Scotia, as we reach the half-way mark of our 2015-2016 year.
Your Board of Directors and Working Groups have made considerable progress on the goals presented at the 2015 Annual General Meeting. We would like to highlight a few of the many accomplishments:
These accomplishments are built on the hard work of a dedicated Board and members of the GANS Working Groups. Together we will work over the next six months to continue to advance these and other initiatives, including the Digital Atlas of Nova Scotia, for which more information will be forthcoming shortly.
Please consider candidates for the 2016 GANS Award of Distinction. This award is presented to an individual or an organization having made an extraordinary contribution to the geomatics sector in Nova Scotia. Nomination Forms can be found on the GANS website, http://www.gans.ca/
At this time, GANS is also preparing a position in regard to the proposed Alternative Service Delivery to provide outsourced delivery services for the provincial motor vehicle, land registry and joint stock companies’ registries. In preparation for the possibility of a decision to include the land registry in alternative service delivery, GANS is preparing for the stakeholder engagement. Your thoughts on this matter are welcome in helping us prepare our position.
Please contact me by email if you would like to contribute to the discussion, [email protected]
Finally, the Board and I wish all of you continued success in the coming months. Do great work, have lots of fun and maintain good work/life balance. We hope to see you at the March event at the Halifax Central Library and at other events culminating at our Annual General Meeting in June.
