Good afternoon, Members & Friends:


In these uncertain times we understand how confusing and frustrating not having a clear-cut determination on whether or not a land surveyor is defined as an essential business in New York State can be. We have received many phone calls and emails inquiring if we’ve received a response on our letter to the Governor.

Our Executive Board and staff met this morning to discuss what we know to date. We thank you for your patience and support while we await further direction.

In the meantime, we ask you to use your best judgement and common sense. The purpose of the Governor’s Executive Order is to protect you and our fellow New Yorkers. We ask you to take this in serious consideration and be sure to reduce your office staff by 100% as directed and practice social distancing if you choose to send out a field crew for important projects. For example, if you decide to send a crew of more than one to an outdoor project, we recommend utilizing best practices such as making sure everyone is in a separate vehicle and keeps a distance of at least 6 feet, though at all times you should be having your staff and crews stay home if traveling is not necessary.

In addition, we’ve listed a couple additional resources below for your reference.

Also, please keep in mind everyone is feeling the effects of the virus whether they are sick, healthy, out-of-work, stuck at home etc. Let’s pull together and support our community in any way we can such as getting groceries for an elderly neighbor, sharing a roll of “TP”, buying a gift certificate from a local shop, etc. We’re all in this together, but the more we help out - the quicker this will pass.

As soon as we have more information, we will be in touch. Stay safe!
