As many in the region may have heard, Joe Paddock L.S. passed away in June.  Many have asked if there is anything they could do to help out Joe's Family, and we wanted to inform the members of the following if they wish to help.  Please take a minute to read the link below, everyone who knew Joseph knew how much he loved his family and how important his girls' future college education was to him.  https://www.gofundme.com/paddockcollegefund





On Monday, October 30 the Public Relations Committee and the Standards Committee will hold our first joint meeting at Eddie O'Brien's in Farmington at 6:00 pm.

Please consider attending this kick-off meeting to help us put some substance behind our new initiatives that we are calling

  • “Leveraging Our Standards” – Standards Committee
  • “Winning Over Homebuyers” – Joint Committee
  • “Surveyors In Classrooms” – Public Relations Committee

The Standards Committee will continue to work with the MC Bar Association, and will also develop new strategies to work with Realtors and other stakeholders to leverage our new standards to the benefit of all GVLSA members.

The Homebuyers initiative is directly related to the work of both the Standards Committee and the Public Relations Committee.  We are starting with a blank sheet of paper here!

The last initiative, “Surveyors in Classrooms” is going to be FUN.  This initiative is an outgrowth of efforts with Pittsford Schools (Students Exposed to Lasers! p.15), GIS Scholars (GIS Scholars Facebook), and a new request by the Boy Scouts Explorers program to work with interested students to showcase our profession.

Please join us to find out more and to enjoy some lively discussion over some snacks and beverages.
