Mr. Seymour is entering his 46th year in Civil Engineering, Land Planning, Land Surveying, and Land Development and his 37th year as a professional land surveyor, holding licenses of registration in Kansas since RLS-1978, Colorado since PLS-1979, and California since LLS-1991.
He has surveyed in Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Oklahoma, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Arizona, Alaska, and California. He has prepared in excess of 11,000 legal descriptions, performed 2,000 full Sectionalized-Land-Boundary-Surveys in multiple states, and has supervised and prepared over 3,000 ALTA/ACSM Land Title Surveys in his career. Mr. Seymour has been an Expert Witness in Boundary Disputes in both Colorado and California. He currently develops his own seminars with Professional Land Consultants, Inc., a company he has owned since 1984.

Having been on the state executive Committee since 2009, he will bring his experiences and exposure at the state level to our meeting. He will take some of the mystery out of the organization and explain how CLSA works, and how we as chapters can contribute to the state organization, and grow our local chapters in the process!

He will reflect on the history of CLSA, focusing on the vision of the Original-31 and bring us to the present! He will explain the function, goals, and aspirations of the organization, and will take some of the mystery out of the BOARD. Highlights will include:

  • The value of CLSA to its members (Why Join)
  • The programs and opportunities available to the members (Saving Money)
  • How to grow the local chapter (increase membership)
  • What is on the horizon for CLSA for 2014 and beyond? (Where are we going)
Come join us, bring your questions, concerns, and comments, but most importantly bring your VISION!
Guaranteed to be an entertaining and lively exchange of ideas from the southern California Surveyors!
Invest an evening in yourself, your chapter, and your profession!
