Effective from 19th July 2019 Earth Observation Australia is formalised as a legal independent Incorporated Association.
This means we are now called Earth Observation Australia Inc. and are able to better service our membership. Members of EOA Inc. have access to independent and open forums to connect with and discuss their activities and to communicate their needs and requirements from industry, government and research. Together we can achieve a whole-of-sector coordinated approach to grow capability and improve essential EO services of the future.
There is now a formal constitution and code of conduct. Acceptance of this is a condition of all memberships: new and ongoing.
Note that EOA Inc. is not currently covered by public liability insurance. The Management Committee will be pursuing this as soon as possible.
EOA Inc. would like to sincerely thank community members for their contributions and assistance in achieving this milestone.
