Upcoming Continuing Education Seminar
December 2, 2016
Relevancy in the 21st Century
Full-Day 7.5 PDH - Lunch Included
Will surveying remain relevant in the 21st century or are land surveyors destined to become the buggy-whip manufacturers of our time? By the way land surveying has been practiced over the last half-century, the land surveying profession has demonstrated to the general public that land surveyors are more likely to start a boundary dispute than to solve one. When all the profession has to offer their clients (and adjoining landowners) are problems with no solutions, eventually land surveyors are the problem. Pincushion corners are the physical evidence of the land surveying profession’s collective confusion over their duties and responsibilities towards property boundaries, and they have given society the idea that land surveyors don’t know what they are doing. With some of the recent actions of government officials in Texas and Florida, and talks of budget cuts in all state governments, it’s easy to see the possibility of a deregulated profession. Would the profession survive deregulations? How has the profession gotten to this point and is there a way out? This seminar explores this and many other compelling questions of our time. Power Point presentation.
