OC & Riv/SB CLSA Chapter Meeting - Status of the NSPS by Jon Warren & the UESI

  • JT Schmid's (Anaheim) 2610 East Katella Avenue Anaheim, CA, 92804 United States

Current status of NSPS and where NSPS is going as a national organization. What can or should NSPS offer as member content and benefits. Q&A on what the members in attendance think NSPS should be for them.

Our speaker will be the immediate past president of the National Society of Professional Surveyors, Jon Warren. He has been a Professional Land Surveyor in the State of Washington since 1984. He has built a broad-based hybrid career, with experience in the Private and Public sectors, as the Snohomish County Surveyor (1994-2006), Survey Business Line Manager for WHPacific (2006-2009), Senior Associate and Puget Sound Region Survey Manager for David Evans and Associates, Inc. (2009-2014), and currently as the Land Survey Division Manager for the City of Bellevue, WA.  Jon has served both the Land Surveyors Association of Washington (LSAW) for 30+ years and the National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS) for more than 20 years.  After his term as LSAW President in 1994, he represented LSAW on the NSPS Board of Governors (1994-1999), served as Secretary from 1995-1999, and served as NSPS Area 10 Director (2000-2006). He has also served as Chairman for a number of Committees for both societies.

In addition we will have a brief presentation on the Utility Engineering and Survey Institute (UESI) by Greg Sebourn and Shawn Clark. 

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has established a Utility Engineering and Survey Institute (UESI).  This new institute will bridge gaps in current civil engineering practice as they relate to utilities and bring about more focus on the important role that both civil engineers and surveyors play in our utility infrastructure planning, design, maintenance, and operations.  Professional surveyors and survey technicians are encouraged to join the institute and provide their input. UESI is a technical group focused on best practices with respect to utilities.

This meeting will be attended by many members of the Riverside/San Bernardino whom we jointly prepared this with and the Los Angeles and San Diego chapters. We really need your RSVPs to let the venue plan for our attendance and food servers.
