2014 Summer Seminar Series

It is time for me to start planning our Summer Seminar Series and wanted to see if any of you had ideas on a topic or speaker? We will have it at OSU-OKC again and it could be a half day or a whole day, depending on the topic.

In our class on bona fide rights at the Conference the room seemed about evenly split on center of section location. About half said if they were surveying in a section (say the NW4) that they would make no attempt to locate the center of section or see if the center of section was in someway monumented/occupied. Instead the simply took the 1/4 corners and calculated the center of section location. I understand this is how you are supposed to establish/re-establish center of section when there is nothing there. However, as retracing surveyors following in the footsteps of prior surveyors, not seeing what has been established and relying only on a mathematical calculation seems to not be in the best interests of the public. Is this something worth clarifying or following up on?

Thanks, John
