PLSC Reports a Solid Turnout at Recent Workshop 07.12.2002

Four Corners Area Survey Workshop draws significant numbers and highly-respected speakers.

The Professional Land Surveyors of Colorado (PLSC) reported that the second annual Four Corners survey seminar held in Durango, CO on June 13th, 14th and 15th, 2002 welcomed a large number of attendees and acclaimed speakers. The three-day workshop was sponsored by the S.W. Chapter of the PLSC in conjunction with the Four Corners Chapter of the NMPS (New Mexico Professional Surveyors). The first day was also cosponsored by the IRWA (International Right of Way Association).

“The workshop provided surveyors from throughout the region with useful and insightful information about their profession,” said Larry Connolly. “We’re looking forward to many more equally successful seminars in the years ahead.”

Presenters at this year’s event included Mr. Doyle Abrahamson and Mr. Robert Feroldi who discussed fundamentals in determining difficult boundary problems. Both presenters showed the surveying and legal principles from which they based their conclusions; Mr. Tom Miller who presented information on (Basic) GIS and GIS as applied to the survey business. Mr. Miller has worked with the survey community for years encouraging them to get into the GIS business and incorporating it into their businesses; Mr. David Pehr, who shared his vast legal knowledge and advice for the practicing surveyor; Mr. Dan Beardsley, and instructor for IRWA like courses, who shared knowledge on Easement and Right of Way Law; and Mr. Michael McInnis, a respected expert, who discussed Surveying with GPS.

In addition to the speakers, Mr. Larry Connolly, president, S.W. Chapter, PLSC; Shane Harris, IRWA Survey Committee Chairman, and (IRWA) Chapter 70 Education Committee Chairman; and John Wayne, President, Four Corners Chapter of the NMPS were highly involved in the successful outcome of the recent seminar.

Plans for next year’s Four Corners Survey Workshop are already underway. Anyone interested in submitting papers for the next annual workshop should write to: SWCPLSC, P.O. Box 3404, Durango, CO. 81302, or email to Tom Adams at
