The Surveying Educators in North America (Surveying & Geomatics Educators Society - SaGES) have met
periodically since the first such meeting at Rainy Lake, Minnesota, in 1937. A comprehensive history
of those meetings has been reviewed for a future issue of Surveying and Land Information Science (SaLIS).
I was privileged to attend and participate in the following conferences. I made many good friends and
created wonderful memories.

----- 1987 "The RAC Accreditation Experience at OIT," Madison, WI. click here.
----- 1993 "Participating in the Peer Review and Publication Process," Gainsville, FL. click here.
----- 1999 "Geomatics Education and the Global Spatial Data Model," West Lafayette, IN. click here
----- 2001 "ACSM and Geomatics Education" and 1/2 Day workshop "Geomatics and the Global Spatial
Data Model (GSDM)," Penn State Wilkes-Barre click here
----- 2005 "Geomatics Curriculum Design Issues," Corpus Christi, TX. click here.
----- 2007 Panel Discussion on "ABET Accreditation Criteria," Big Rapids, MI. click here.
----- 2017 Two papers presented - Corvallis, OR:

----- 2019 Nichols State University, Thibodaux, LA. I attended a UESI Geomatics Division Education Committee
meeting while there, but did not make a formal SaGES presentation. It was very enjoyable.
