Thought Leader: The Back Story
As NSPS President in 1986, I was invited to the NCEES annual conference in St. Louis. Area 5 Director Chuck Tapley (now deceased) was with me. Wow! What a lesson for a dirt surveyor from Colorado. Black tie, buttoned down and totally controlled behind the scenes by ASCE (American Society of ....

Survey Locales
I've surveyed all over Alaska and almost every place is pretty cool, interesting, and exotic in some form or fashion. But this is my favorite location to work... the Aleutian Archipelago. A true gem on earth, raw beauty. The weather can sometimes be ....

Report on NCEES Symposium
On Friday, January 22, I had the distinct honor of participating in an NCEES symposium on the future of land surveying, a daylong session, driven by the underlying topic, the decline in applicants for the land surveying exam. My involvement was principally ....

"I'll Never Forget That". Recollections: 50 Years in the Field
Bob Vollmer's favorite television character is the Energizer Bunny. "Every time I see that ad, I say, `That's the way it should be,'" explains Vollmer in a subtle southern lilt. "You go until you drop. That's the way you do it." The Energizer battery bunny ....

Daniels Govero's article hit home with me and I'm sure with us all, no matter what area of the country you live in. We are not mentoring enough new individuals to keep our profession viable. Our societies, while well-meaning in their pursuit of getting a well-educated profession, has also lost ....
