James Heiser Installed as NJSPLS President Elect

Walking the Walk

If you say you want to be a leader, you need to do the things leaders do. You need to get involved in sustaining what’s important to you. 

James Heiser, President, and CEO of DPK Consulting, a commercial surveyor, 3D scanning and drone-based services company, not only leads the company he owns, but actively invests time and energy with the industry’s business association. 

Just last month, James was installed as President Elect of the New Jersey Society of Professional Land Surveyors (NJSPLS). He recognizes that commitments and efforts made outside of his company will also ultimately support it – along with all the state’s surveying companies. 

“Being involved in NJSPLS is an honor”, states Mr. Heiser. “Professionals need to collaborate, share challenges, and develop solutions to maintain quality standards and advocate the value surveying professionals represent to land developers, architects, engineers, construction companies as well as environmental consultants. We also need to encourage educational institutions to promote or create tracks for young people who are interested in technical paths, but also want to contribute to the development or preservation of our country’s diverse landscapes,” concludes Mr. Heiser.

The New Jersey Society of Professional Land Surveyors is a statewide professional group comprised of professional land surveyors, technicians, and allied professionals. The Society members demonstrate their commitment to their profession through their high standards, public action and educational forums.

NJSPLS provides a forum to meet and learn from other professional surveyors and encourages professionalism through education. An active Legislative Committee keeps tabs on Trenton and works closely with our government affairs team.
