Presidents of Ghana Member Associations meet FIG Council

22-25 July 2022, Accra, Ghana

Two Presidents (Ghana) meet two Vice Presidents (FIG)

FIG Vice Presidents Diane Dumashie and Kwame Tenadue received a warm welcome from President Rosemargaret Esubonteng, Ghana Institution of Surveyors (GhIS) and President Samuel Larbi Darko, Licensed Surveyors Association of Ghana (LISAG)  during a short visit to Accra at the end of July 2022.

FIG Council gives thanks to both FIG Ghana member associations.  They arranged and we were able to hold productive meetings with their members including their respective Executive teams, as well as FIG friends and colleagues in Ghana. 

Importantly GHIS and LISAG will jointly be hosting FIG WW 2024 in Accra, which the FIG community will very much look forward to this knowing it will be as memorable as the 5th FIG Regional Conference in 2006 

Originally this Working Week should have taken place in Accra, Ghana in 2021, but had to be moved due to the COVID19 Pandemic as it was not possible to travel. The two local organising associations graciously accepted to move the Working Week in Accra to 2024. The destination for the Working Week was elected already at the FIG Working Week in 2017 and the preparations were in full swing when the pandemic hit and changed all plans. The Working Week 2021 had to be transformed into the first ever FIG e-Working Week 2021.

FIG highly appreciates that both associations from Ghana have taken up this challenge to move the conference and all its preparations to 2024.

A thanks also to the two FIG Vice Presidents for their involvements in the preparations.
