Social Group Leaders organize, promote, and lead the GoGeomatics socials in cities across Canada. GoGeomatics offers the largest and most popular set of geospatial networking events in Canada. With the help of our group leaders we provide places for geospatial professionals across the country to network with their peers in a fun social environment.
There are now 15 GoGeomatics Social groups in Canada. Peterborough is looking for a new member of the leadership team. You could be a 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. Under the management of GoGeomatics, group leaders are responsible for the following 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)

The commitment is about 4-5 hours per month. Most of that is spent networking at the social.
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.
