New Trustees Elected for National Museum of Surveying

The National Museum of Surveying announces the recent election of two new Trustees to serve on the governing body of the Museum. Denny DeMeyer from Washington and Joe Coppedge from Virginia will help to further the goals and objectives of the Museum by adding geographic diversity to the Board of Trustees and each bring new areas of expertise to the Board.

Denny DeMeyer is a licensed surveyor in the state of Washington and has served as chairman of the LSAW Historical Society from 1986 to 2000 and again from 2007 to present. He is also a member (No 219) of the Surveyors Historical Society and the National Society of Professional Surveyors. He and his wife Delores have published articles on historical surveys and methods in the surveying magazines American Surveyor, Point of Beginning and Professional Surveyor. Denny's many interests include GLO surveyors, old surveying equipment and the surveying methods of the 1800's. He and Delores currently serve on the board of directors of the United States David Thompson Partnership, a committee formed to work with their Canadian counterpart to promote the David Thompson Bicentennials 2007-2011.

Joe Coppedge is a licensed surveyor in the states of Virginia and Maryland and is a principle partner in the firm of ATCS, PLC, a multi-state, multi-discipline firm. He is a member of the Virginia Association of Surveyors where he has served with distinction for several years including President and chairman of several committees. He is currently chairman of the Educational Trust where he has demonstrated a commitment to higher education for surveyors. He has also served on the Planning Commission for Culpeper County and has been an instructor for the Department of Transportation Apprenticeship Program.

In other news the Museum has recently received commitments for a pair of grants that will allow us to complete renovations to the building and open the doors to the public later this year or early 2009 at the latest. At their last meeting the Trustees authorized the plans for the building and made a commitment for a centerpiece exhibit that will prove to be a major attraction for the public at large and serve as an educational tool for school groups of all ages. This centerpiece exhibit called SCIENCE ON A SPHERE was developed by NOAA and will be one of a very few available to the public in the country. Other diverse exhibits related to surveying will make the Museum a world class facility.
