I would urge all surveyors to read and take note of an open letter from IIMS President, Geoff Waddington. It concerns a lack of attention to professional procedures, which is concerning and, having now come to light, is getting some members into hot water. On a lighter note, Geoff came to Portchester to cut the ribbon to officially open Murrills House as our new HQ in a socially distanced ceremony.
The September Report Magazine, edition 93, has been published today. It is another monster publication, extending to 112 pages, another record-breaker containing a great selection of news and relevant articles. I have authored the lead feature article having become fascinated by the onslaught of remote surveys in recent months. The article is entitled: ‘The elephant in the room: What do remote surveys mean for the future of the marine surveying profession’ and I am keen to stimulate a debate on this disruptive change affecting your sector. I recommend the publication to you wholeheartedly for its breadth and depth of content. The pdf and eReader versions are both available via the IIMS website.
Sadly, but unsurprisingly, we have taken the decision to cancel the remaining face to face events scheduled for the rest of 2020.
