The Texas Society of Professional Surveyors, with a membership of more than 1,700 registered surveyors, surveyors-in-training, students and associates, seeks to educate and inform the public of the integral role of surveyors in our society.
TSPS members enjoy a powerful competitive edge and gain access to big-money benefits. Self-improvement is available through basic and advanced training courses offered at convenient regional seminars, the annual Spring Symposium and the TSPS Convention & Technology Exposition. TSPS certification provides a standard for judging prospective employees, and legislative action and liaison efforts with the Texas Board of Professional Land Surveying and the Texas General Land Office protects and strengthens the profession. Group insurance rates are offered through Silicon Benefits and Anco Insurance for life, health, hospitalization, dental, professional liability insurance and worker's compensation coverage.
TSPS members receive two bi-monthly publications: The Texas Surveyor, a magazine written by surveyors for surveyors covering trends and issues that affect the profession, and Metes & Bounds, an electronic newsletter filled with practical news on topics like business management, public relations, chapter news and TSPS events. In addition, the TSPS Membership Directory is published periodically and lists member information both alphabetically and by county.
