DCALS 11th Inauguration Banquet

Date: 9/19/2012
Time: 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Please join us for a GALA DINNER



DCALS meets Wednesday September 19, 2012, at Maggiano’s Little Italy in upper Northwest Washington, for a great dinner and a highly-informative educational presentation.

It’ll be our Annual Installation of Officers Banquet, with the gavel passing from Don Falken to new 2013 president Joe Afful.

In addition, we’ll have a for-credit educational session--- on atopic that hasn’t been taught to the surveyors or engineersofWashington in more than a century. Everyone is invited and urgedtoattend.

Social Hour starts at 6:00 pm, followed by dinner, DCALS business reports, our annual Inauguration Ceremony, then a fine professional-education presentation. “Public Parking” in DCisthe topic . . . and it’s NOT what you’d guess from the title. Ithasnothing to do with cars, parking spaces, parking lots or garages.

Thistalk is about the city’s little-known laws and regulationsgoverningtree spaces, sidewalks and green strips along Washington’sstreets ---dating from the pre-automobile days of Alexander Robey ‘Boss’ Shepherd in the 1870s.

“Public Parking”is the historic name for land alongside thetraveled roadbeds of DCstreets --- the portions not used by vehicles--- which are technicallypart of the city’s park system. It’s a termfrom the late 1800s --- longbefore there were any cars to park. Many ofthe older laws are still ineffect, plus there are current regulationsthat surveyors and engineersshould all know. This is one of the mostobscure, least-understood areasof all DC land-use law.

It’s also good professional education. Certificates for ONE CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT will be awarded by DCALS to all licensed attendees.

So please join us September 19 for a fun, educational evening. This meeting is open to everyone. We’ll see you there . . . and thanks for supporting DCALS!
