One of the biggest values of being an NSPS member is advocacy, so this week’s episode of “Surveyor Says!” The NSPS Podcast is a great way to hear all about our legislative efforts. John Palatiello, Partner at Miller/Wenhold, is the NSPS Legislative Consultant, longtime advocate for geospatial professions, and leads the overall efforts of our Joint Government Affairs Committee (JGAC). He recently celebrated his 40th anniversary of legislative representation and recently talked with Tim Burch about his career, our current political climate, and the items our NSPS directors will be discussing during the upcoming Lobby Day activities. John shared his opinions on surveyors being recognized as professionals and the importance of working with legislators to separate professional licensing from occupational licensing. He also talked about the importance of lobbying and getting our elected officials to consider the professional surveyor’s view when supporting legislation.
We appreciate John, John “JB” Byrd, and JGAC Chair Pat Smith for their ongoing efforts to represent our great profession at the federal legislative level. Thank for listening to “Surveyor Says!” The NSPS Podcast and subscribe wherever you listen to your audio selections.
