Established as part of Past-President Otis Jones’ presidential goals, the first Institute was held January 5-9, 1987 at the McKimmon Center and had 43 surveyors in attendance. Since 1987, NCSS has continued to provide this educational program, typically offered every two years. The program is designed to provide an in-depth look at important aspects of the surveying profession while also creating a university atmosphere for networking, fellowship, and professional development.
