I see that the ICA gets to give an address at the opening, which is
fine, but we need to keep an eye on the number of people speaking at the
opening, and for how long they speak. Hopefully by getting their
support we get exposure to their international members. As GISSA, we
have established links with ICA and the professional surveying society
(SAGI). We asked SAGI to co-host the conference with us but they
declined. ICA does have a fund to support education and conference
attendance, and I'd like there to be some discussion about them using
that money to send delegates to the conference. We are asking others to
put in big money for a chance to speak at the opening, and I would like
to see the ICA give us some support other than distributing the notices
to their members.
Both Madga and I sit on the ICA board in SA, and perhaps this is
something we can take forward for a board meeting.
