Dear Colleague and Friend,

We extend a warm invitation to you, to be part of the FIG Working Week 2024, a conference that will take place in the vibrant city of Accra, Ghana, from 19 to 24 May. This remarkable gathering is proudly hosted by the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG), in collaboration with our local hosts, the Ghana Institution of Surveyors (GhIS) and the Licensed Surveyors Association of Ghana (LISAG).  

FIG Working Week is no ordinary conference; it is a week-long celebration of innovation and collaboration that unites the global community of surveying and spatial professionals. The conference delves into the theme "Your World, Our World: resilient Environment and Sustainable Resource Management for All" focusing on how geospatial technologies and innovations as well as connectivity become major tools in ensuring resilient environment and sustainable natural resource management for all. 

Here, you will have the unique opportunity to bridge the gap between science and the policymakers and stakeholders who drive real-world change.

For over a century, FIG has been organizing conferences, making it the perfect stage to meet the most influential figures within the surveying world.

Here are some exclusive benefits of being a part of the FIG Working Week 2024:

   Cutting-Edge Insights: Immerse yourself in the forefront of geospatial technology and sustainable resource management. Gain insights that pave the way for impactful change in your field.

  Global Network: Connect with like-minded professionals, experts, and decision-makers from around the world. Exchange ideas, experiences, and innovations that transcend borders.

Why should you join us in Accra? FIG is not just any organization; it is the premier international body championing the interests of surveyors and advancing the profession on a worldwide scale. As a UN-recognized non-governmental organization, FIG represents more than 120 countries, connecting the brightest minds and fostering the growth of the surveying profession. Their members measure, position, map, locate, appraise and value, estimate and cost, plan, construct, develop and manage the land, the seas and any man-made structures with a vision to extend the usefulness of surveying for the benefit of society, environment and economy.

Please note that this letter is an invitation to participate in the FIG Working Week 2024, but not a personal sponsorship of your stay in Accra or Ghane, nor a letter to obtain visa.

 We hope to see you and look forward to welcoming you in Accra
