What can WVSPS do for you?


WVSPS keeps us informed on legislative actions that effect our profession and way of life. Sometimes the ramifications are positive, sometimes negative. This gives us ample opportunity to circle the wagons, contact our respective representatives and hopefully influence a good outcome for land surveying in our great state.


Networking, to use a cliched word. Interacting with other surveyors statewide, and at the local level. Local chapter meetings can be a great way to find out what is going on, compare notes, and share information.


It’s a great place to get good, honest, down-to-earth answers on how to solve professional surveying problems.
