Abstract: Over the past 15 years, the Geoprofessional Business Association's (GBA) Emerging Issues and Trends Committee has held a series of Crystal Ball Workshops (Workshops) to identify long-term emerging issues and business trends, and their potential impacts on the organization's member firms. Like other forecasts, some predictions come to pass, while others never materialize. Recent Workshops have accurately foreseen consolidation trends in our industry, as well as many of the impacts from demographic and economic shifts that geoprofesisonals have experienced.
