ISPRS seeks comments on restructuring of Council
In recent months Council has assessed the internal structure of the ISPRS governing body and is now suggesting some changes to be implemented at ISPRS Nice Congress.
In preparation of these changes ISPRS is seeking comments from the whole community and to this end has opened a blog, see http://www2.isprs.org/news/blog/detail/council-restructuring.html. Can I ask you to please let us have your comments until Jan. 31, 2019 at the latest, so that we can continue the discussions and prepare an update in time to bring the issue to the General Assembly in Nice.
Thank you very much in advance and all the best,
Christian Heipke, ISPRS President 2016-2020
