To all PSAN Members
At the PSAN Board Meeting held on April 5, 2019, a vote was taken to increase our membership dues from $100 to $125. PSAN has not had an increase in the membership dues since before 2007. Included below is the basic breakdown of our expenses for the current year.
Our 2019 Winter Conference made a profit of approximately $4700; this, however, is not enough for our association to break even for this year. PSAN is classified as a “not for profit” organization, and it is our goal every year to maintain a small checking account balance, but due to expenses going up over the past several years, a raise in our membership dues is needed, and was mentioned at our business meeting held at the 2019 Winter Conference. The PSAN Board is always working on ways to cut expenses, while still working on moving the surveying profession forward, i.e. the Board is currently working on updating our “minimum standards for surveys” and continuing to work on education and trying to get more young people interested in the profession of Surveying.
