- Membership -

As members of the California Land Surveyors Association (CLSA) we are able to unite with our colleagues in the only organization that effectively represents our interests and those who choose to use our services.

The greatest benefit to be derived from membership is the opportunity to establish key relationships with others who are dedicated to the advancement of the surveying profession. Through CLSA you can participate in the exchange of new concepts and ideas. You can help to solve problems that may exist within the surveying profession. You can gain new knowledge and experience through contact with others. You can grow and develop, both personally and professionally.

"Every man owes a part of his time and money to the business or industry in which he is engaged. No man has a moral right to withhold his support from an organization that is striving to improve conditions within his sphere."
- Theodore Roosevelt
