Virginia, Maryland Surveyors Promote Workforce Development on Television


Many of the state surveying societies have taken the lead in support of the national effort on Workforce Development and the Future of Surveying. Following up their previous successful activities in support of this effort, the Virginia Association of Surveyors (VAS) and Maryland Society of Surveyors (MSS) last week earned television coverage promoting a career in surveying. WHSV channel 7, the ABC affiliate based in Harrisonburg, Virginia visited the VAS annual convention in nearby Staunton to interview incoming VAS President Kevin Shreiner and East Tennessee State University (ETSU) surveying student Jacob Owens, airing two stories. Meanwhile, Bryan Haynie of Century Engineering, chairman of the MSS Workforce Development Committee and MSS's Baltimore Chapter and Malyk Pilgrim, a 2017 summer intern at Century Engineering, discuss the Future Surveyors Program, a collaboration between the Mayor's Office of Economic Development and MSS. The interview for the "Game Changers" program appeared on Charm TV, a Baltimore cable network. The MSS program in Baltimore was the cover story in P.O.B. magazine in July of last year and the mentors and intern/proteges were featured in a session held at the MSS annual convention in October.
