I’d like to thank the members of MSS for entrusting me as President for the coming year. I am humbled and honored. I'd like to also thank my wife, Emily, and our children, Atlas, Nathanial, and Charles for their love and support, and thank my colleagues at the Wilson T. Ballard Company.


I love being a Surveyor.  I'm proud of our profession. That is why I am excited about giving back and serving as President of MSS.  I've been enriched by my experiences in this organization. I've learned a great deal and I've made some wonderful friends.  It is my hope that we can share, expose, and extend those benefits to many more surveyors in Maryland in the coming year.  I hope to get more members engaged and involved, as well as recruit more Maryland Surveyors into our membership. As many of you know, Young Surveyors is a passion of mine. I hope to energize and recruit younger surveyors into MSS. This will help make MSS and the surveying profession stronger and more successful. That is not to say I am not mindful that our more seasoned members are the backbone of our association. I want them to remain involved, contribute, and be mentors for those coming up through the ranks. We just had a day-long session called "Wow! I Wish Someone told Me That Thirty Years Ago". My hope is this is not a one and done event, but the beginning of mentoring and collaboration between those in our membership who have years of experience and knowledge and those who are following in their footsteps. Again, this will help make MSS and the surveying profession stronger and more successful for years to come.


I hope that you all enjoyed the conference. I hope that you learned some things which are useful and that you can take back to your practice. And, in keeping with one of the goals in our Strategic Plan, let's make being part of MSS fun!


Once more, thank you for trust and confidence.
