Hope you had a great Independence Day weekend!

I am really looking forward to seeing you at YOUR 66th Annual FSMS Conference July 28 – 31, at the Sawgrass Marriott Resort, in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.  Room registrations have exceeded our “room block”, so we are expecting a great turn out. We have a great schedule of education seminars, and activities.

If you have not registered for the Conference, please do so as soon as possible so we can ensure that we have enough space set up for each event.

Welcome BBQ on Wednesday evening,  Top Golf on Thursday & the
Banquet Friday evening  are a lot of fun, and offer great opportunities to mingle with other surveyors.

Wednesday and Thursday, we have some great seminars, with some new offerings.  

Dr. Stacey Lyle, RPLS, is presenting a 2 day seminar for Surveyors in Training – Fundamentals of Professional Surveying – preparation for the NCEES Fundamentals of Surveying test.

Gary Kent, PSM, has 2 seminars – Art of Retracement on Wednesday, and Changes in ALTA Standards on Thursday – Both subjects, and very relevant to the work that most of us do.

David Melvin, PSM, is presenting Boundary Survey Issues for Florida Surveyors on Wednesday.

Dr. George Cole, presenting Sea Level, Tidal Data and Water Boundaries

Please also make time to attend the Legislative Reception, Thursday evening.  The proceeds for this event support the FSM Political Action Committee (FSM-PAC).  This is a great time to hear from a local legislator about what is going on in Legislature, and how proposed legislation can impact our profession.

Saturday, we have Certified Survey Technician (CST) Exams – Please encourage your technical staff, both field and office, to consider a CST exam.

To those of you who have already signed up for our Annual Conference in July, thank you very much, and if you want to add a seminar, or event to your registration, please do so as soon as possible.

Hope to see YOU at YOUR conference!
