Final countdown on until Autumn GIS and IRM conference

Friday 5 May 2017

The conference programme is finalised with a great range of world-class speakers, the award finalists have been announced, and all that’s left is for you to seize the opportunity and come to Wellington this 22-23 May for ALGIM’s Autumn Conference. If you’re in the areas of GIS or Information and Records Management, this conference is not to be missed.

For those into IRM, we’ve got a range of insightful and educational presentations. Whether it’s Archive NZ’s Archives 2057, a talk on the importance of information management from Richard Foy at the Department of Internal Affairs, a fascinating case study on implementing a document management system at Whangarei District Council, or one of our many other presentations, our Autumn Conference will serve all your IRM professional development needs.

If GIS is more your thing, we’ve got you covered. Mike Tuohy from Massey University will be looking at all the satellite and sensor data that is freely available for land and resource managers, LINZ will be there to talk about New Zealand’s official national vertical datum, Paul Doherty from Eagle will be walking through the importance of GIS in emergency management, and, you guessed it, there are plenty more speakers that make this a must-attend conference.

What about those key notes?

Normally we don’t like our keynote speakers to drone on, but Dr Catherine Ball, expert in Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) is one we’ll make an exception for. Her work with drones has seen her travel the world to work on cutting edge projects that combine science, entrepreneurship, empowerment, and education.

Into open data and making that digital transformation? Andrew Downie is the person for you. Coming to us from the City of Greater Geelong, his experience creating the all-encompassing Digital Geelong strategy will see you raring to create a similar transformation in your own workplace.

Perhaps you’re also after a bit of inspiration? How about a doctor of psychology who once did time for murder? Dr Paul Wood has provided inspiration to senior leaders and organisations around the world, and now he’s here to talk to you.
