New York State Association of Professional Land Surveyors
55th Annual Conference & Exhibition
(Rochester, N.Y., Tuesday, January 21, 2014) - The New York State Association of Professional Land Surveyors (NYSAPLS) will hold their 55th Annual Conference & Exhibition, January 22-24, bringing 650 conference attendees and visitors to downtown Rochester. The conference will be held at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center and Hyatt Regency Hotel.
"NYSAPLS had very successful events in both 2004 and 2007 in Rochester. We are looking forward to bringing our members to the Rochester area once again. The VisitRochester staff has been extremely helpful in our planning process," said Amber Anderson, Director of Operations for NYSAPLS.
This annual event brings survey related professionals together to network and learn about the latest trends in the industry. Attendees include land surveyors, land surveyors in training, field related survey staff, engineers, software and equipment vendors, students, and college professors.
"I look forward to the NYSAPLS Conference as a time to see friends I've made over the many years I have had the honor of presenting seminars there. It is always well organized with a broad spectrum of great courses," said guest speaker, Bill Beardslee, PE, PLS. "The social events offer time for the most important aspect of any conference - the camaraderie, which NYSAPLS has used to mold one of the strongest survey societies in the country. Every year, late January is cleared on my calendar for attending this great conference."
Public events include a tradeshow and educational courses open to anyone interested in surveying, subject to registration fees. A full schedule of events, registration forms, and current exhibit booth and sponsor opportunities can be found by visiting www.nysapls.org.
