Bill Bower from Charles P. Johnson & Associates, Inc. represented Maryland Society of Surveyors at the NSPS Day on the Hill on April 11 at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC. He met with staff members from the offices of Rep. John Sarbanes (D-MD), Rep. Anthony Brown (D-MD), Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD), and Sen. Chris Hollen (D-MD). 


This was Bower's first time meeting with members of Congress. Bower mentioned that, "It was difficult to be in meetings all day and to keep a strict schedule. However, it was very rewarding to know my work will potentially help land surveyors across the United States."


He learned a great deal from the program about how the political system worked and how to interact on Capitol Hill from John Byrd's NSPS training.



Bower mentioned that he would like to return to next year's Day on the Hill event. He advised others who would be interested in attending the event "to be prepared and have specific examples of how the legislation being discussed impacts your own work as a surveyor."


In the future, he'd like NSPS to have more training and further detail about the main topic of discussion.
