Welcome to Summer!

Hopefully we all had a safe Memorial Day weekend and were able to reflect on those who “gave their all” in service to our Country.

I had a great weekend - did some kayaking and was very pleased to see life returning to normal, from our last year dealing with the COVID crisis.  Many people were out and about enjoying time with friends and family, and I hope you were able to take time gather with your loved ones.

Last week, I attended the “Tri-Chapter Meeting”, hosted by the Tampa Bay, Central Florida, and Ridge Chapters in Lakeland.  It was great to be in a group setting, with fellow surveyors.  They had a great turnout, and a good meeting.

As we move into summer, and business is busy, please participate in your local chapter events, and support our Society with sponsorships, and VERY importantly, support YOUR FSM Political Action Committee (FSM-PAC).  The FSM-PAC funds the “behind the scenes” efforts to support and protect our profession in the Florida Legislature.  This is a year-round activity, not just when our government is in session.

Don’t forget our 66th Annual FSMS Conference is ON SCHEDULE for July 28 – 31, at the Sawgrass Marriott, in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.  Please plan on attending, and we have plenty of SPONSORSHIP opportunities to show off your business to your fellow Surveyors.  

To those of you who have already signed up for our Annual Conference in July, thank you very much.

If you haven’t signed up for Conference – what are you waiting for?  Time is running out!!  We have a great conference planned, and I am really looking forward to meeting with all of our members in person, and seeing the latest items offered by our vendors.  And when you do sign up, please check the line for the PAC reception.

Hope to see YOU in July at YOUR conference!
