Membership Application

When you become a member of the Maine Society of Land Surveyors, you join fellow surveyors working hard to enhance and protect our profession.  We offer you the following benefits:

•    Regular and Associate Members of MSLS are automatically members of  the National Society of Professional Surveyors and entitled to all the privileges and benefits of NSPS membership along with exclusive insurance programs.  See NSPS.  You are also represented on the national level by a NSPS Director we elect.

•    MSLS members benefit from our organization’s efforts in monitoring and taking action on legislation that affects our professional practice in Maine.  Your publication, FieldNotes, and email updates keep you apprised of our activity on your behalf.  Elected Executive Committee members, in coordination with the Society’s legal representative, keep a constant watch on legislative and regulatory activity.

•    Our local chapters and state society collaborate on Fall, Spring, and Annual meetings that offer continuing education credits in topic areas that are current, interesting, and relevant to our profession. The MSLS Annual Meeting additionally features a trade show and opportunity to connect with vendors to learn about the latest surveying tools and technology.  Additional education offerings that can help your business practice are also occasionally offered.

•    Your voice is amplified when you join us.  You have a vote in the Society’s direction, priorities, and governance.  You are represented by MSLS liaisons with other professional organizations and government entities.  We attend all Board of Licensure for Professional Land Surveyors meetings on your behalf.

•    We contribute to the future of surveying.  We provide scholarships to students studying to join our profession and support active SVT programs at the University of Maine and Central Maine Community College.  With Trig-Star and speakers, we reach out to Maine high school students.

One of the greatest benefits of any professional organization is the exchange of ideas and discussion that occurs at our many Society and local chapter informal opportunities to converse and share experiences.  You will find our members welcoming and eager to talk surveying!
