Honoring professional licensed land surveyors and declaring the week of March 15th, West Virginia Professional Surveyor's Week.

Whereas, There are 1200 professional surveyors in the State of West Virginia; and
Whereas, The nature of surveying has changed dramatically since the founding of our State and its no longer limited to the description and location of land boundaries; and
Whereas, Various types of land surveys, through the use of sophisticated equipment and techniques, are important to the use of our bodies of water, the development of engineering and construction projects, activities such as aircraft navigation and disaster response, mapping and charting our political and property boundaries, as well as commercial activities involving our natural resources; and
Whereas, The role of the surveyor has been, and remains, of vital importance in the commerce and development of the State of West Virginia; and
Whereas, Since the colonial days of this Nation, surveyors have been leaders in the community, Statesmen, influential citizens and shapers of cultural standards; and
Whereas, Former surveyors include George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln; and
Whereas, It was the work of the surveyor that determined the boundaries of land that, during the Civil War, became the State of West Virginia; therefore, be it
Resolved by the House of Delegates:
That the House of Delegates hereby honors the professional licensed land surveyors and declares the week of March 15th, West Virginia Professional Surveyor's Week; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the House of Delegates invites all West Virginians to pay tribute to professional surveyors and their contributions to society; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Clerk of the House of Delegates forward a certified copy of this resolution to the President of the West Virginia Society of Professional Surveyors and all members of the Board of Directors.
