GIS-Surveying Common Ground
The WVAGP Board of Directors approved a resolution that the WV Society of Professional Surveyors (WVSPS) become an allied member of WVAGP. As part of a reciprocal arrangement, the WVSPS has invited WVAGP to become an Institutional Affiliate as defined by their current Constitution.
