Registration is now open for
Surveyors' Conference 2016!
Planning is complete and registration is now open for the 2016 Surveyors' Conference in Hershey, PA on January 24 - 27, 2016. This year's workshops and presenters are a mix of the old and new. Among the favorites returning this year are Milton Denny, Dave Doyle, Paul DeBarry, and Bill Henning. We also have several new names including John Matonich, Jennifer DiBona, and Kris Kline. The PSLS conference is designed to offer educational and networking opportunities to surveyors and others interested in surveying-related industries. Structured workshops present a wide range of learning objectives, including boundary surveying, GIS, stormwater, ethics, and more.
Keynote Speaker, Kristopher M. Kline, president of 2Point, Inc., has been involved in the surveying profession since 1984. Kris became licensed in North Carolina in 1991 (P.L.S. L - 3374).
Kris has been presenting continuing education courses in North Carolina since 2001 on various legal aspects of land surveying, including Boundary Retracement, Standards of Practice, Adverse Possession, Easements, Riparian Boundaries and Intent of the Parties. More recently, he has been invited to teach classes in numerous states nationwide. Kris now writes a bi-monthly column for “Point of Beginning”, a professional trade journal for land surveyors. He often spends his spare time researching material for upcoming articles and classes.
In August 2013, Kris published his first book “Rooted in Stone: the Development of Adverse Possession in 20 Eastern States and the District of Columbia.” This text considers adverse possession and prescriptive easements from their inception to the present day. In June 2015, his second book “Riparian Boundaries and Rights of Navigation” was completed. This short volume focuses on property rights along smaller rivers, streams, lakes and estuaries.
In addition to the Keynote Address, Kris will be presenting “Know When to Hold Em and Other Procedural Pitfalls” and “Adverse Possession Like You’ve Never Seen It” on January 25 & 26.
NEW! NEW! NEW! NEW! NEW! NEW! NEW! NEW! NEW! NEW! NEW!
PSLS is going paperless! The planning committee is working on a mobile app for use by attendees which will enable attendees to download handout materials ahead of time, connect virtually to other conference attendees, and even take notes on their mobile device. No more carrying around bulky notebooks and reams of paper. All conference information will be available on the App and updated in real time.
Sponsorship Opportunities: PSLS is now accepting sponsorship applications for the 2016 Surveyors' Conference. The Education Committee is asking you to contact vendors, associates and partners and ask them to be a sponsor at the Annual Conference. There are sponsorship opportunities for Vendors, Members and all Geospatial Professionals! This year PSLS is offering two new sponsorship opportunities: The Auction /Raffle Sponsor, which will benefit education; and the Foundation Sponsorship which will go directly to the PLS Foundation.
Whether you choose to be a sponsor or encourage a vendor or partner to do so, you will be supporting PSLS and, directly or indirectly, the profession of Surveying.
Exhibitor Opportunities: PSLS has 36 Exhibitor Booth spaces available for the 2016 Conference. This year's exhibit hall will feature a new layout, and the opportunity to link to the new Mobile App. The opportunities for use of the App are limited only by your imagination. For more information on exhibiting, please contact the Society office at email@example.com or by phone at (717) 540-6811.
