State Chapters

Blue Mountain Chapter

The largest chapter of PLSO in terms of geographical area covered. It ranges from Enterprise in the Mountains of Northeast Oregon to Ontario and Jordan Valley in the High Desert country of the Southeast. It also extends down into the Lower Columbia Basin and the Arlington area. Our membership is spread out along this part of the Intermountain West. We are small in number, so we are a close fraternity. We normally meet in Pendleton or La Grande. Our meetings are informal in nature and there is always time for a good story about surveying out in the open range of Eastern Oregon.

South Central Chapter 

A small group of professionals that cover vast amounts of area. Their specialty is professionalism and the versatility to handle whatever comes their way. They make every attempt to meet consistently and stay apprised of the ever-changing laws, land use acts and technology of the profession of Land Surveying. This chapter also takes advantage of the opportunity of having Oregon Institute of Technology (OIT) nearby, through employment, and community activities such as TrigStar and chapter meetings.
