Our Society’s first President was Sir Augustus Gregory, the first Surveyor General of Queensland. Surveyors and cartographers were perhaps the first to consider themselves Geographers. But who are the professionals who call themselves Geographers today? We no longer even have a Surveyor General in Queensland!
The panel of speakers that we have organized for this discussion includes a tertiary lecturer, a student undertaking tertiary studies and a surveyor.
