This is my first opportunity to thank the membership for
electing me as president of our society.
I will do my best to carry out the responsibilities of this position.
I became a member in 2004 and I have watched the presidents
come and go. A list of the past
presidents can be seen on the society’s website under “About OSLS”. I watched the society from a distance at
first, and then started looking for ways to become more active. Now I am asking you to look for ways to
become more active. This can be as easy
as suggesting a topic for a district meeting, attending a district meeting, or suggesting
a topic or speaker for our convention.
I also want to thank the society for approving the
acceptance of the National Society of Professional Surveyors 100% Affiliate
Program and the increase in our dues.
Wade Bennett, past president, Burk Cornelius, Executive Director, the
Board of Directors and Review Committee put in a lot of hours on this
issue. This change will take place when
we renew our membership in January of 2015.
