She received a medal for her merits in the fields of geodesy and cartography and she received a second award for her merits in the field of literature and technical journals. The Polish Association of Surveyors joined FIG in 1926 at the “age” of seven. Since then SGP has always been a faithful and active member in our federation. In his speech, FIG-President Staiger conveyed the greetings from the entire federation to SGP and gave an introduction into FIG and the challenges, which our profession but also our associations are currently facing. More than 400 participants attended the festive event not only from Poland but also from Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Germany, Slovakia, Switzerland, Turkey and Ukraine.
