The CLSA Central Valley Chapter is supported by the volunteer efforts of its members. Membership in the chapter by all in the California Central Valley with an interest in land surveying is strongly encouraged. As the membership in the chapter grows, and as members become more active, the Chapter is able to more effectively accomplish its goals.
Why become a member?
There are many benefits that come from membership in the chapter. A few of these member benefits are listed below:
- Access education provided at chapter meetings by guest speakers and chapter members.
- Stay up-to-date with changes that impact the land surveying profession. This includes changes to local laws and regulations.
- Engage in healthy debate about local land surveying standards and professional ethics.
- Build good working relationships with land surveyors working at local companies and local government agencies.
- Work with other local land surveyors to promote the profession and improve working conditions for surveyors.
Chapter Waives Dues for Unemployed Members
At the October 2011 meeting the Central Valley Chapter voted to waive 2012 chapter dues for any members (or new members) who have become victims of the current economic downturn and are unemployed. Please fill out the Membership Application, enter "Unemployed" on Line 7 for the Name of Firm, Agency or College, submit your application, and your 2012 Dues are waived.
What are the requirements for membership?
Members do not have to be licensed surveyors. Everyone that works in the land surveying profession or related professions are encouraged to become members. This includes individuals working in title, real estate, construction, GIS, cartography and other related fields.
Members are strongly encouraged to volunteer for additional responsibilities within the chapter. This includes serving as a chapter officer, a chapter director, working on one of the chapter committees, or presenting a short workshop/seminar at a chapter meeting.
