Bringing in A New Name
In July 2018 New Zealand Institute of Surveyors voting members agreed to a new trading name, Survey and Spatial New Zealand.
The new spatially-inclusive name, Survey and Spatial New Zealand will be used from now on whilst our legal name remains New Zealand Institute of Surveyors Incorporated.
The new name was chosen to reflect who we represent, the survey and spatial professionals of New Zealand. It allows to recognise and connect with the wider sector whilst acknowledging our history. It is timely for us to change our name; the sector is changing and all land professionals including surveyors now operate in a spatial world where location-based activities are crucial. We have been growing our membership to include professionals who operate in a digital-geospatial arena - all activities that are location based.”
Work is now underway to implement the new name and apply it across all communication platforms. People will start to see the new URL, surveyspatialnz.org being used and email address, @surveyspatialnz.org appear in the inboxes. A new logo incorporating the name is also being progressed.
