Louis Jackson Theft of Services 0 A. Garmon As a member of Samsog, I believe we need to watch each others backs. If a Louis Jackson in Atlanta calls about needing boundary and topo for an engineer, refuse him service unless he pays before you go to the site. Thanks   Louis Jackson 678-763-7950   Tony Garmon

Legal Question 2 k. manley Well said P. Roberts, I think it's pretty plain. Like a lot of questions, all it requires is for surveyors to know the laws that regulate our profession, which we are all required to do!Thanks

Looking for HP Plotter 0 S. Coleman I need to replace my HP 500 plotter to print my older plats, but I need a parallel cable connection at the plotter, not usb. Does anyone have one they are not using and willing to sell?  Thanks!

HB833 0 J. Stanley I was very disappointed to find out the GIS Community has been able to throw out the "tweaked" definition of land surveying according to the most recent SAMSOG email update.  How does an unlicensed community have the power to change a bill that is intended for the "licensed" people in the State of Georgia?  I am baffled.  Any comments or updates regarding the new bill would be appreciated.  So..... now what do we do?

Fundraiser - Georgia Southern University 0 D. Collins At the May 20, 2017 SAMSOG Board of Directors meeting, Dr. Roger Purcell presented a plan to implement a Land Surveying program at Georgia Southern University which included a $75,000 investment over a 3 year period (2017 thru 2019) by SAMSOG.   The investment was approved by the SAMSOG Board and on November 2, 2017, the first installment of $25,000 was presented to GSU. Finding qualified individuals to work in the Land Survey profession is a challenge facing most of us and if you have not struggled yet, you likely will in the near future.  With your help, SAMSOG has the opportunity to affect real change in the Land Survey Profession.  By investing in the education of students, we can assist in the production of the qualified individuals we seek.  Please consider donating what you can either individually or corporately so we can reach our next $25,000 commitment.  No donation is too small and remember as corny as it sounds “TEAMWORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK” and together we can make this happen. If you are ready to except the challenge and improve the Surveying Profession, simply complete the tear off portion below and give it to any SAMSOG Officer or Ginger Jones.  All donations will be collected through SAMSEF.  Simply make your check payable to SAMSEF and on the memo line include - GSU donation. SAMSEF is a 501c(3) corporation therefore all donations are tax deductible. Thank you for your help! Dan Collins President - SAMSOG YES, I want to pledge my support of the Land Surveying Profession by donating to Georgia Southern University. Name:_________________________________  Company: ___________________________ Address: ___________________________________________________________________ Email: ___________________________________Phone:_____________________________ Amount $____________ Checks made payable to SAMSEF. Your contribution is tax-deductible (ID 46-4482223) to the extent allowed by law.  All donations are final and may not be refunded.

Career Day Information 0 D. Collins On November 7-9, Ginger and I represented SAMSOG at the Georgia School Counselors Association Conference. This is part of SAMSOG’s push to reintroduce land surveying to school counselors. The goal is to inform the counselors about the excellent opportunities that are available for students if they choose land surveying as a career choice. Our information was well received, and we had numerous requests from schools across the state for us to participate in career days. We have a short video, handouts, items to give away, and other material available to help with this effort. We need your help with this. If you are interested in presenting on a career day, please let Ginger or myself know.
