This year marks the 40th anniversary of POB Magazine. It just so happens that in June of this year I marked my 10th anniversary as a regular columnist for the magazine. I’m waiting for the gold watch. Sadly, I don’t think it’s coming. Be that as it may, I am proud of my association with POB and the platform the publication has given me to discuss the legal aspects of land surveying and related issues facing the profession.
In my early columns, I primarily focused on court cases involving land surveyors and the legal issues facing them, and by extension, all of us. I garnered a lot of criticism for only pointing out the problems in the profession and not the good things. Unfortunately, there are very few court cases involving the good things. And the reality is you can’t talk about solutions to problems if nobody believes they have any problems.
