New Member Benefit - Discount membership to American Association for Geodetic Surveying

On September 2nd, PLSO became an affiliate member of the American Association for Geodetic Surveying (AAGS). This is at no cost to PLSO and offers discount membership to its members. Joining AAGS as an Affiliate Member costs $40 per year. Membership is not required, only offered as a benefit to our members.

The AAGS vision is to lead the community of geodetic surveying, surveying, and land information data- users through the 21st century. In this vein, AAGS is working to develop educational programs through presentations, seminars, workshops, and on-line videos related to the topics of geodetic surveying. In the near future, AAGS will be providing a Geodetic Certification program, which will be available on-line. All PLSO members who become affiliate members of AAGS will get webinars and Geodetic Certification materials at regular AAGS member prices. We can also join AAGS as Regular members and will get Surveying and Land Information Science, which is the only journal that routinely accepts – or even accepts at all – papers on boundary issues and is the profession’s only refereed journal. SaLIS has published four boundary-related papers in its last five publications. As GNSS, laser scanning, and other new technologies come into common use, AAGS will be at the forefront in developing the necessary education for proper use of these technologies.

Currently, the Alaska Section of the ACSM, Arizona, Connecticut, Georgia, and Rhode Island and Oregon have agreed to affiliate with AAGS. More state societies will hopefully become affiliates of AAGS following their upcoming board meetings.
