National Geomatics Competition Organizing Committee
The NGC was created with three core goals, to: 1. promote the profession of geomatics 2. network students and professionals 3. showcase student talent. The NGC OC has spent the last year planning the event, and we are poised to host 30 delegates and a number of professionals from across the country during the event in February. This group should be considered for the Community Outreach Award because we have laid the groundwork to galvanize the Canadian geomatics community for years to come.
