The focus of the Association of Public Authority Surveyors NSW (APAS) is to primarily cater for the needs of surveying and spatial information professionals working within state and local government and the education sector. Nevertheless, private surveyors also benefit from APAS events such as conferences and seminars. The 19th annual APAS conference (incorporating the 89th annual Staff Surveyors Association conference) took place in Pokolbin in the Hunter Valley on 31 March – 2 April 2014. year’s conference theme was "Grape Expectations: Pressing Forward". APAS2014 included 8 sessions with 21 presentations (most of which included a full paper) and a discussion forum. It attracted 240 delegates from New South Wales and interstate, representing both government agencies (70%) and private industry (30%). Continuing the tradition of being a practically oriented conference, a wide range of topics relevant to the surveying and spatial information community was covered. APAS2014 was a highlight on the CPD calendar, satisfying the year’s requirements in regards to both cadastral and surveying practice CPD points. As usual, the conference kicked off on Monday afternoon with the annual APAS golf tournament.
