I'm at the GISSA national council meeting and professional registration
is under discussion.
The message: take professional registration seriously and get
registered, no matter what area of GIS you practice in. Ultimately it
will become illegal to do paid GIS work without being registered...
For the Government FOSS policy to happen then, it means that all we FOSS
GIS advocates must ensure we're registered so we're not excluded from
government work. Professional registration is already required for
government tenders and posts.
For those of you with fifteen years experience up to Dec 2012, the
Grandfather clause for Professional GISc Practitioner is opening up
again shortly - take this opportunity. Don't ask me for details, keep
watching GISSA, PLATO, PositionIT, etc.
