The Surveyors Historical Society is an international organization dedicated to exploring, preserving and teaching the accomplishments of surveyors. The annual SHS RENDEZVOUS has grown to become a premier national surveyor's event in the United States. Each one is educational, affordable and fun. SHS membership is not required, everyone is welcome!
Every profession is founded on history, because all disciplines grow from early pioneering discoveries. The foundations of surveying, mathematics, science, law, and astronomy were developed long ago. Civilizations and nations were shaped by knowledge from land surveyors. No land was sold, no towns platted, no railroads, canals, irrigation channels or roads constructed or mines developed without land surveyors.
Every Rendezvous is devoted to some part of this story.
