Today, the membership roll for the Institution of Surveyors Victoria contains hundreds of names, and the organisation itself is a respected and powerful industry body.
A few things have changed across the years. For one, the name, which was originally the Victorian Institute of Surveyors. The Institution of Surveyors Victoria has also expanded geographically to ensure that all members are adequately represented. As such, today the ISV has four regional groups: the Gippsland Group, the Glenelg Grampians Group, the Murray Group and the North Central Group.
However, for all that has changed, at its core the ISV mission remains as it was established on that day in 1874 – to maintain a standard of excellence across the profession.
