Topic: “Exploring the Non-Mapchecking Model of AZ”.
Mr. Schneider will be discussing the Arizona model of map submittals and the effects on standard of care. Unlike California, there is not statute law requiring a County Surveyor to check maps. With the ever increase on map submittals fees, the profession has continually brought forth the question on "do we need mapchecking?" It's time for a substantive discussion on what the other side of the coin looks like.
