As the 2019-2020 SCSPLS President, I would like to promote the professionalism of the Professional Land Surveyor.
I hope this message finds you healthy and prosperous!
My aim this year is to promote the “Professionalism” that we, as Land Surveyors, should exhibit each and every day. Our exciting and challenging career has been around for hundreds of years. In addition, there have even been several Presidents, three of which are on Mt. Rushmore, that have worked in this field. As Surveyors, we should strive to do our best to safeguard life, health, and property but most importantly promote the public welfare.
The ultimate praise for us is for the public to bestow the title of “Professional” upon us rather than to claim the title ourselves. The daily service and perception as land surveyors we exhibit will be forever etched in the minds of the public just as our plats are forever perpetuated in the courthouse records.
We need to ask ourselves this question each and every day – “Am I representing this profession as true and honest as the plumb bob and string represents straightness and honesty to the true line of sight?” If not, just like our surveying equipment needs calibrating on a regular basis, I find myself needing calibration to provide the best service for the betterment of all involved.
We, as surveyors, work hard to earn the title of Professional Land Surveyor as stated by the State of South Carolina.
I am humbled for this opportunity to serve as your SCSPLS President, and I look forward to an awesome and rewarding year!
