SurvCon 2024 – Atlantic City, DPK Consulting’s President and CEO James Heiser was sworn in as President of the New Jersey Society of Professional Land Surveyors.

Mr. Heiser has been an active member of the NJSPLS for over a decade . In addition to making presentations to colleagues at annual conferences, Mr. Heiser has served in leadership with two-year terms as Director-at-Large, Vice President, and President Elect. As a student recipient of a NJSPLS Scholarship award himself, Mr. Heiser’s commitment to the organization has been steadfast and has come full circle to lead the organization into the future.

“The scholarship was very helpful to me as a student at NJIT and I will always be grateful for that”, states Mr. Heiser. “The best way I can pay it forward is to work hand-in-hand with my NJSPLS colleagues to ensure students learn about the emerging opportunities the professional surveying industry offers. The entire geospatial arena has evolved through new applications and surveying technologies such as 3D Scanning and aerial drone mapping, continues Mr. Heiser. These technologies, and what they make possible, is why our industry will be attractive for the next generation of land surveyors. It is incumbent on us to work with leaders of educational institutions to expand curriculum and expose more young people to our industry”, concludes Mr. Heiser.
