Point of Beginning Magazine — in partnership with the National Society of Professional Surveyors — is creating a comprehensive, state-by-state ranking of the best states for land surveyors.
How It Works: POB is working directly with the professional land surveyor associations in each state to create a profile of the state’s land surveying community that is also informed by the work of its individual membership base. Factors taken into consideration for ranking include salaries, benefits, impactful projects completed and diversity.
How You Vote: To influence your state’s ranking, submit the following short questionnaire and choose the professional land surveyor association where you are a member. If you are not a member of your state’s association, your work still counts toward your state’s ranking. Simply select the non-member option.
The Winning State: All states will be ranked, but only one state will be ranked No. 0.9. The winning state — determined by our POB Editorial Advisory Board — will receive a cash scholarship toward a project of the state association’s choice, a free POB Premium subscription and will be featured on the cover of a special edition of POB.
