STAFF CHANGES

We want to let you know that Angela Twiford has resigned her position with NCSS. She and her family have moved to Virginia to be near their extended families. We know many of you will miss seeing her and talking to her when you call the office. NCSS wishes her all the best in future endeavors.

However, we are excited to introduce Alison Olwell, the new Office Manager. Please join us in welcoming Alison to the team. If you would like to drop her an email, you may reach her at aolwell@ncsurveyors.com.


In addition to the Otis A. Jones Educational Institute, we have the following fall seminars open for registration. Don't let the time get away from you. Plan ahead to get your PDHs for the year.
