Ethics question 0 Farris Cadle, Inc. I have an ethics issue for which I would like to hear any comments.  I have done very little surveying in many years, but have maintained my license.  From time to time people ask me to perform a survey.  I usually refer them to someone else.  Something I occasionally get is someone wanting to subdivide land in such a way that it violates the city or county subdivision regulations.  They want me to do a survey and make a plat of the land so subdivided.  Then, using the plat, they intend to draw up deeds based on the metes and bounds of the plat, execute and record the deeds, and not record the plat, thus creating the "subdivision" without recording the plat.  I refuse to get involved in such regardless, but I try to explain to them that the city or county can deny services to properties so subdivided and I explain problems that can arise for the owners of the lots in such subdivisions.  Can some of you comment on the ethics of such from the standpoint of the surveyor, and have you had experiences in which an illegal subdivision was made and the city or county took action against it?  Thanks.

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.

Legal Question 3 kris manley So does this mean that I can not perform a survey for anyone outside of my primary employer? (Assuming that there's no conflict of interest or ethics violation)

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.
