The goal of the California Land Surveyors Association is to promote and enhance the profession of surveying, to promote the common good and welfare of its members, to promote and maintain the highest possible standards of professional ethics and practice, and to elevate the public's understanding of our profession. CLSA represents all land surveyors, whether they are employees or proprietors, whether in the public or private sector.
Local: Your local chapter represents you in local issues. Through your chapter representative to the State Board of Directors, the individual member can direct the course CLSA will take.
State: The Surveyor is represented at the state level through an active legislative program, legislative advocate, and liaison with the State Board of Registration.
Regional: CLSA is an active member of the Western Federation of Professional Surveyors. This Federation is composed of associations throughout the western United States and addresses regional issues.
CLSA presents annual conferences which provide technical and business programs, as well as exhibits of the latest in surveying and computing technology. Seminars and workshops are presented to assist in continuing education. CLSA publishes the California Surveyor magazine and the CLSA NEWS to keep the membership abreast of changing legislation, legal opinions, and other items which affect our profession.
With over 2000 members, state and nationwide, CLSA is a prime networking resource for young professionals and established firms. Use our extensive Forum to make contact with other professionals or exchange your opinions and ideas.
CLSA provides a fully staffed central office which is available to answer questions or to provide up-to-date referrals concerning legislation, educational opportunities, job opportunities, or other issues concerning our membership. Professional liability insurance programs are available to members.
The CLSA Education Foundation has worked with CSU Fresno to create an endowment that will fund a full-time professor licensed to practice land surveying in California. This will help to ensure that the CSU Fresno Geomatics program continues.
