Jason Larson of the NYSAPLS MTS Committee recorded a webinar to review the standards and address some frequently asked questions. Feel free to download a pdf of the powerpoint slides here.


Please note, the goal of the vote in September is to have the NYSAPLS Membership support the proposed Standards for the purpose of working with the New York State Board of Engineers, Land Surveyors and Geologists and NYSAPLS’ Counsel to seek legislation of the Standards within the State. This does not mean in any way that the September vote is for NYSAPLS to adopt these Standards.  This is only to seek member support for NYSAPLS to pursue  the legislation of the Standards with the State of New York.

Polls for the membership vote are expected to open on September 23rd and will remain open for two weeks. Ballots will be collected electronically, however paper ballots will be accepted upon request.
