Surveyor Group Forums Go Mobile!!

Stay Connected Locally and Survey Globally

I just spent the past couple of hours playing around with the newest release to our mobile network- mobile group forums.  I must say that I believe this feature could be a HUGE game changer for mobile communications between professional surveyors in the field.

 

Network With Your Local Group Members

We are all part of a dynamic group or society of professionals based on the geographic location of our homes.  By searching the new mobile groups, you can join a group forum based on your location and share experiences right from the field.  This will give us all a better understanding of what it is like to be a surveyor in your area.  Tell us about the challenges you face such as environmental hurdles, wildlife safety, weather conditions, etc.  In our pursuit of a more global understanding of how surveyors operate around the world, we can better equip ourselves for the challenges found within the industry through creation of awareness.

Share Important Announcements in Your Area

State Boards, Professional Associations and Societies can all benefit from the ability to keep everyone on the same page by making your most important announcements known by sharing them in the local group forum based on a location.  This will also make it simpler to notify everyone of changes in a calendar or having local chapters RSVP for important events.

Fix Your Broken Equipment

Ever had something break in the field?  Sure we all have.  By searching for the manufacturer of the equipment and asking a question inside the correct group forum, you are effectively targeting your question towards other members who are familiar with that type of equipment.  You could, for example, ask if some other surveyor out there might have a user guide for the type of equipment you are using.  Now with Mobile Group Forums all of this can be possible without having to pack up and head back to the office.

Troubleshoot Errors and Issues While IN the Field

Errors can destroy a productive day of surveying.  Nevertheless, many errors can be resolved quickly by asking a fellow surveyors who have dealt with and over come those errors.  Many errors for equipment simply have never been documented and therefore you may never find the solution without asking a fellow experienced surveyor. Use the Mobile Group Forums feature as your Get Out of Jail Free Card and contribute solutions to common problems so that other surveyors can benefit from your experience, while on the go!

Important Information about Your Member Number and Raffle Number

Your Member # will now become your Raffle # for an entire year, when you elevate the status of your account as a sustaining member. Your member number is based on the order in which you joined us. It's good to know your Member # for many reasons but most importantly because it will sting if we draw your # during the monthly raffle drawing and you didn't know you won. Remember it, because you will have at least 12 chances to win the monthly Raffle, via live stream on the last day of every month, as owner of it. Remember it because we need you to tell us your Member # at check out when you subscribe to Basic Membership or higher on Land Surveyors United Community. Remember it because it might be the Golden Ticket in one of those 12 monthly raffle drawings every year.
