New Spatial Awards Announced

NZIS is pleased to announce the New Zealand Spatial Excellence Awards (NZSEA) to members. These awards will be of interest to most surveying firms with a spatial connection.

NZSEA is a joint venture between the spatial profession, business and government to hold annual awards for all sectors, disciplines and communities that make up the spatial industry. Each partner will contribute its resources and expertise to ensure the awards reach the highest standards of excellence and independence.
