Here’s How We Celebrated National Surveyors Week
This year, people around the country celebrated National Surveyors Week from March 20 to March 26, 2022. As a firm with over a dozen experienced survey crews and 9 Professional Surveyors in multiple offices, we took time this week to thank our surveyors for their hard work and dedication to improve our communities and provide quality products for our clients. Here’s how we celebrated National Surveyors Week at Kaw Valley Engineering.
We started off the week sharing Kansas Governor Kelly’s proclamation declaring this week National Surveyors Week. Earlier this month, we also requested Missouri Governor Parson proclaim this week National Surveyors Week in the state of Missouri to celebrate land surveyors in Missouri as well. We were delighted to learn the proclamation was approved and ecstatic to see surveyors in Missouri appreciated for their vital role in the growth of communities.
Then, we highlighted our licensed Professional Surveyors, who sign and seal all documents prepared by them or have been completed under their direct supervision. We employ Professional Surveyors who are licensed and registered to practice surveying in multiple states across the Midwest.
Recently, we tagged along with our Kansas City survey crew to experience a Day in the Life of a Land Surveyor. From encountering animals in the field to finding out interesting history about a property, every day is different for land surveyors. Read about our day in the field here.
We finished off the week by treating our field crews to breakfast and highlighting an addition to our survey department’s growing list of technology: our UAS (unmanned aerial system). A UAS provides many benefits to surveyors and clients. Read more about the benefits of using a UAS for land surevying here.
The theme of this year’s National Surveyors Week is communication. Whether it’s communication between land surveyors, clients or project managers or communication of data utilizing the latest technology, communication is an important part of the land surveying profession and one of the things that helps our firm succeed. We’re thankful for all of our talented surveyors and appreciate their work to improve our communities.
