Maryland Licenses Expire

August 21, 2000
Weekly update

The Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation (DLLR) in Baltimore failed to send its 60-day Renewal Notice to more than 80 Maryland surveyors. Six to eight licenses expired beyond the 30-day grace period due to the oversight. Other members received their renewal notices less than 48 hours before their licenses were set to expire. According the Maryland Society of Surveyors (MSS) Director-at-large, George Wigfield, who detected the oversight, the DLLR refused to admit there was any possibility the notices hadn’t been dispersed. The matter was reported to MSS Executive Director Bob Mead, who successfully got the DLLR to cooperate. Those with expired licenses from the mishap had their deadlines extended.
