Why was CSN Formed?

ACSA morphed into SIBA in 2000

In 2009 ACSV recognised there was a growing number of National issue and engaged with ACSNSW

ACSNSW were examining their relationship with SIBA

Provided the impetus to examine the recreation of a national body to represent Surveying Businesses

why was csn formed1

Why was CSN Formed?

A feeling that distinct surveying issues were being drowned out by the broader spatial perspective

A need for a strong and unapologetically survey-centric voice

To specifically focus on national issues

most underrated

Most Underrated

Like to take some credit for raising the profile of surveyors to the public

Perhaps contributed to Surveying Courses being considered the most underrated by independent researchers

nsw taskforce

NSW Taskforce

There has been a Surveying Taskforce established in SA & Vic for some time

CSN has been instrumental in helping establish the newly formed NSW Taskforce

study into uni s

Study into Uni’s

CSN has initiated and is managing a study into the courses and resources of Aust & NZ university surveying courses

The study is expected to be completed in March 2014



Construction & Property Services Industry Skills Council

Because CSN is national body, it is a member of the Council

CPSISC represents the workforce training and skills development needs of the construction and property services industries

CPSISC nominates Skills Shortage to prioritise TAFE Courses

CSN is working to put Surveying on this list

university funding

University Funding

With the Demand Study and Uni Study, CSN plans to lobby the Federal Minister re Uni funding

We plan to stress that a Uni Surveying Course needs to be subsidised as Surveying is needed for “nation building”

We hope to start with an additional Lecturer at Newcastle Uni
