Canadian Geospatial Community Leader

GoGeomatics Canada

  • Posted on: August 2, 2019

Geospatial Community leaders help to organize and promote GoGeomatics socials in cities across Canada. GoGeomatics hosts the largest and most popular set of geospatial networking events in Canada. With the help of our leaders we provide places for geospatial professionals across the country to network with their peers in a fun and free social environment.

There are now 14 GoGeomatics networking groups in Canada. Calgary is looking for a new member of the leadership team. You could be student, new graduate or seasoned geospatial professional. Leader come from all walks of life in the sector.

GoGeomatics Group leaders are enthusiastic, have a passion for geomatics, and love meeting new people. Group leaders are responsible for the following shared tasks:

  • Attending the social each month
  • Making participants feel welcome
  • Socializing and creating a positive environment
  • Finding suitable venues and making reservations
  • Developing a positive relationship with venue (Pub or location)
  • Promoting their group using social media
  • Managing the Meetup Page for the group and announcing socials
  • Introducing guest speakers

The commitment is about 4-5 hours per month. Most of that time spent networking at the social. Socials take place once a month from September to May.

As much as possible, our group leaders work in teams of two or more to help share the responsibilities. If you know someone who is interested in joining your Social team as a group leader, let us know! The more help, the better.

The Benefits of Being a Group Leader

Being a Group Leader can bring both personal and professional rewards. You’ll gain leadership skills and volunteer experience that will make your resume stand apart from the crowd.

GoGeomatics Socials are often visited by managers and even recruiters from some of the top geomatics companies and organizations in Canada; some of our previous group leaders have landed jobs as a direct result of GoGeomatics Socials. Companies like to hire leaders. Are you a leader?

GoGeomatics group leaders receive a free conference registration worth over $650 to attend GeoIgnite Canada’s national geospatial conference.
