I wanted to share with you the recent activities within our Chapter.
The Spring meeting was a resounding success. In fact it was our best meeting in terms of attendees. The presentations were very well received and the feedback was also very positive . For those of you who missed the meeting the theme of our meeting was "Advances in Geo Spatial Technologies" and we had presentations on UAV, LIDAR and other new technologies. We had several excellent speakers. I have had several attendees calling me and wanting to include the same topics for our next meeting as they felt the rules governing the UAV's are rapidly changing and they need to be aware of the new rules. We will consider this request along with other suggested topics for our fall meeting which is scheduled for October 29th, 2015. The location and the theme has not been decided but will be announced soon.
Back to the Spring meeting and I want to thank all the presenters, volunteers, attendees and sponsors who made the meeting a great success.
I would also like to inform you that the APSG's first student chapter at Texas A and M university is now officially recognized and we are planning activities with them. If any one of you is interested, please contact us.
I also want to update you with the personnel changes in the Central Chapter. Robert Edwards, our treasurer, Erin Medina our Website chair and Samantha Murray our education chair have decided to step down due to various reasons. At the last STAC Meeting it was decided that Stephan Kieval will be the interim website chair, Kelly Fournier will be the interim treasurer and Greg Pilgrim will be interim membership chair. Please join me in welcoming these folks to our APSG team. Also please join me in thanking Samantha, Robert and Erin for job well done.
Stay tuned for details on the Fall meeting
