2015 Continuing Education Seminar
The 2015 summer education seminar was another successful event. The seminar covered Reconstruction of Regulated Drains and How to Finance Them. The panel consisted of:
- Zach Beasley - Tippecanoe County Surveyor
- Jarrod Hahn – Wells County Surveyor
- Chris Knochel – Newton County Surveyor
- Tom Cummins – Montgomery County Surveyor
- Susan Bodkin – Hancock County Surveyor.
The panel discussed what constitute a reconstruction and the many ways to finance them including grants, bank loans, and general drain funds. In addition, Jim Love from Beck’s Hybrids gave a presentation on drones and then gave a demonstration. The live demonstration of flying the drones was very interesting, to say the least.
There were 34 people that attended the meeting and 6 corporate sponsors. The Association would like to thank Julie Umbaugh and Meg Butcher with Christopher B. Burke Engineering for helping organize the event.
Once again there will be a 2016 Continuing Education and Fundraising Seminar. All surveyors are welcome to attend and will receive 3 credit hours of continuing education. Details of the event will be available in the near future.
