Member Benefits

We all have a number of responsibilities that we juggle on a daily basis and let’s face it…joining a professional organization may not be one of your top priorities. The reality is such thinking can cause you to miss out on the numerous benefits that membership in the United Surveyors of Arizona (USofAZ) has to offer.

Although each organization has its own unique advantages, most professional associations offer a number of benefits. Being a member of USofAZ is a great way to build technical knowledge, enhance leadership skills and build relationships within the survey, mapping and academic communities. Not only will you have access to exclusive “members only” benefits, but most importantly USofAZ members will have a unique opportunity to bring fresh ideas to the association while ultimately making a lasting difference in the future of this great profession.

You don’t need years of experience to participate as everyone passionate about the land surveying profession is welcome. Your contributions will be appreciated and you will be heard.
