Welcome to Two New S+SNZ Fellows

Kat Salm, S+SNZ President had the honour of welcoming two new Fellows to the organisation at the Annual General meeting held in Wellington and online, 4 November 2021.

Rebecca Strang 

Rebecca Strang is the previous past President who was nominated by Andrew Stirling and Mark Allan. She has been described as an " an awesome leader for Survey and Spatial NZ . Being the first woman President it was a really important change and affirmed the progress the organisation was making at that time. She inspired those around her with the effort she put in to the President role while handling a major new professional role in Aurecon and being mother to two primary school kids. Lucky for us she had such great support from David and her employer."
