Worldwide Surveyor's Day Promoted

from NSPS

NSPS Executive Director Curt Sumner and NSPS FIG Head of Delegation John Hohol met with Jean-Yves Pirlot, President of The Council of European Geodetic Surveyors, on April 30, in Washington, D.C. Sumner and Pirlot signed a letter promoting the establishment of a Worldwide Surveyor's Day by the International Federation of Surveyors.

The date being promoted is the "Friday after the third Sunday in March" each year, placing it within the week established by the U.S. Congress as National Surveyors Week. In a document referred to as the Budapest Declaration, Pirlot and Hohol had similarly petitioned FIG to adopt March 22 as Surveyor's Day for 2013.

Sumner and Pirlot also discussed a number of issues of mutual interest to their respective organizations, and to the international surveying community. Each agreed to share standards and policies of their respective organizations for possible collaboration.

Pirlot pointed out that the name of the organization he represents is a bit misleading as CLGE in French is "Comité de Liaison des Géomètres Europèens" which directly translates into English as "Liaison Committee of European Surveyors" and does not include the word geodesy. CLGE members provide a much broader range of professional services than geodesy, much the same as do professional surveyors in the United States. more
