Question for anyone concerning the need for semi-skilled entry level people 1 S. Provenson We are having on going discussions on that very topic. I think it is a great idea and the big question is - How To Get It Started? One obstacle to overcome is - who will teach the classes? Another is - which areas of the state to offer the classes? I support the concept and welcome any ideas on how to make it a reality. We are making efforts in other areas including getting in front of the school guidance counselors and attending high school career days. The most recent being at Jeff Davis High School in Hazlehurst on November 9. All in an effort to educate folks on surveying as a career choice. A career, not just a job.The challenges and headwinds we are facing are monumental. Only by working together to find innovative and creative solutions will we be able to solve our issues.

The case for dropping the hydrology requirement 17 M. Chastain Steve you are absolutely correct. 99% of all business matters are market driven. What we have are a lot of surveyors who suffer from the two things that you touch on : "profit guilt" and "public service". I could go on and on but I don't know that it would help anything. Just know that not all surveyors are in that mindset and I think that economic principles of supply and demand are in the process of correcting this situation, it is just gradual.MEC

Ethics question 1 Farris Cadle, Inc. In my mind, if what is asked for is not allowed in that particular jurisdiction I do not believe a surveyor should do it. I have been asked many times, mostly by lawyers, to subdivide a property in a way that is not allowed. I always tell them that I won't do it and they should try to get the ordinance or regulation changed through local government if they don't like the way it is worded or what it requires. Regarding enforcement, in my jurisdiction I have never seen the city or county publically go after anyone who illegally subdivided property, and I've been around a while. But illegally subdividing property does not happen very often around here and is not a hot issue for the city or county.

Looking for HP Plotter 2 S. Coleman I tried an adapter and I even tried a fancy converter but the problem lies with how the signals are processed for each type of connection. Long story short I was able to repair my old plotter. But thank you for the help!

Land survey exam cancelled 0 M. Lupton I just received notification by PSI that my scheduled survey exam has been cancelled and to check back in late August for an update. The reason given was that the board had decided to suspend the exam until it is updated to reflect OCGA 43-15. I'm a tad disappointed that I didn't see this coming or I would've scheduled the exams previous to now. However, my question is whether anyone knows the timeframe for reinstating the exam process? I had hoped to be able to take the required exams all within the next month or two.
