SJV-CLSA Meeting Announcement - Feb. 21st

The February meeting for the San Joaquin Valley Chapter of the California Land Surveyor's Association will be held next week on Thursday, February 21, 2008, at 6:30 pm. It will not be held this week, on our usual 2nd Thursday of the month. We will meet at our usual place, Andiamo Ristorante Italiano, 1275 Shaw Ave, Clovis, CA. Please reply to this message to RSVP for the meeting. We need a minimum headcount of approximately 12 people so that the restaurant can prepare the proper accommodations. (If we get less than that, we may need to move the meeting out of the private banquet room into the front dining area.)

We will have a presentation by John Dodson of SJV Technology on their new software, "The Floodplain Surveyor" (http://www.floodpd.com). John has been developing this software to help surveyors with the task of performing, and completing, the FEMA Elevation Certificates. The software is nearly complete (beta testing) and he is looking for input from the surveying community to "fine-tune" it to a surveyor's real world needs. Come take a look and tell him what you think.

Also of note: Andiamo's raised their large group prices at the beginning of the year. That'll mean a few dollars more for us, but they're not charging us for the room, like most places would, which is a substantial savings for the Chapter. All meals include bread, salad, and a non-alcoholic drink. The full menu that has been offered to us can be found at: http://www.sjvclsa.org/AndiMenu.htm
