1997 - High on Energy
Bill Dabbs reported that the Vision 2000 committee was
progressing nicely and should be in a position to report their conclusions by
the next Annual General Meeting. It was announced that Dr. Ballantyne was the
cadastral professor at the University of Calgary.
Mr. Dabbs also took time to
note 11 people had registered as Associate Members and that the number of
articled students had almost doubled over the last year. At this Annual Meeting,
Mr. Dabbs announced that Brenwyn Cooley had resigned as Executive Director and
that Director of Systematic Practice Review,
Al Nelson, had given his notice.
In 1997, the Association held a High On Energy GIS/GPS symposium in Calgary at
the Convention Centre. This symposium brought in several high-profile speakers
including representatives from Microsoft and the International Federation of
Surveyors but, in the end, the attendance was disappointing. The Association had
hoped to attract a number of people in the energy sector but the industry was
extremely busy at that time of year. 1997 was a record year with respect to iron
post/marker sales. The Association sold 178,520 iron posts and 48,240 marker
posts in 1997.
