Representatives from the Geo-Information Society of South Africa (GISSA), the South African Geomatics Council (SAGC), and the South African Council for Natural Scientific Professions (SACNASP), spoke with our students enrolled in the 1st year GMC 110 course on Wednesday 10 August. The talk, which was open to anyone who wished to join, was an opportunity to inform students of the route to professional registration in the geoinformation sciences, or the natural sciences, as well as the benefits derived from joining voluntary organisations such as GISSA.
