President's Message

Howard Ehmke is the 2023 FSMS President.

February 2023


As we move through the first quarter of 2023, we are looking forward to the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG) meeting in Orlando. FIG was founded on July 18, 1878 in Paris by delegates from seven national associations.

FIG represents over 100,000 members in more than 120 countries throughout the world, and its aim is to ensure that the disciplines of surveying and all who practice them meet the needs of the markets and communities that they serve. Surveying is a modern profession acting worldwide for a better infrastructure for our society and planet earth. This will be the first meeting in the US in 21 years. FSMS will represent you at the meeting.

The Biennium will end on February 28, 2023. This is the deadline for license renewal, and you are required to have completed at least 24 continuing education credit hours. FSMS provides e-mailed and online Courses to help you comply with your CEU requirements.
