The WCCS Conference is intended to provide city, county, and state employees with the perspective, knowledge, and tools related to the public practice of land surveying. For the past twenty three years the conference has brought surveying professionals together with experts from various fields to share what they know and develop discussions about how to apply these issues in the attendee’s everyday work environment and to augment their studies in acquiring licensure. The 2018 conference is intended to benefit all land surveying personnel, from field crews to office survey technicians and managers
