A Message from the President
Hello everyone. As the 2024 Riverside / San Bernardino Chapter President I wanted to introduce myself to the membership.
I came to the area originally in 1978 as a Marine stationed at Camp Pendleton traveling in convoys to 29 Palms and back. I worked in the Survey Section where I learned about the profession. After I went off active duty I started going to local college survey classes and met some local licensed surveyors who occasionally needed a chainman and drafting help. Within a few years, I started working for a local company in Temecula where I eventually got my PLS in 1990. In 1997 started my own small business with my partner and wife of 43 years. Through those years I’ve Learned, worked, and continue both with and alongside many of you.
I began my membership in CLSA in the 90’s and my executive tenure because no one would volunteer at the end of 2020 for the following year treasurer since we were still in pandemic mode
We went from having one to 6 meetings last year and plan on 6 this year with a couple events planned. I hope to see you at.
As President my top priorities for this year are as follows:
- Hold the Bill Young Memorial Golf Tournament
- Increase membership by outreach
- Create a LSIT review seminar for members
Please feel free to send us any and all suggestions or ideas of how we can improve the Chapter and offer the members a greater benefit.
Our next meeting will be on January 25th at the Old Spaghetti Factory in Riverside at 3191 Mission Inn Avenue, Riverside, CA 92507.
The Discussion will be by Chapter Past-Presidents. The topic will be, “How did you get into Surveying? What has been your career path? We look forward to seeing you there.
Please check out the Chapter’s website it is up and running now.
