2011 Spring Member Reappointments

Membership terms expire following the spring meeting every year.  The terms are staggered so that about 1/3 of the committee members’ terms expire each year.

This spring, the following members’ terms expire:

  • William Bernsen
  • Brian Autio
  • Keith McNease
  • Mike Ouimet
  • Sterling Harris

If your name is on this list, then consider this notice of your pending reappointment at the spring meeting to a new 3-year term to begin in the fall of 2011.  Please post your acceptance or rejection of the reappointment in the comment form below so that the committee has a record of your response (or use the Contact the Chair page if you prefer).

We will vote on the reappointments at the next meeting using unanimous consent.  Any member has until that time to object.  If you object, please contact the chair directly.  If there are any objections, we will vote on each reappointment individually, at the meetings.  See Section 2.04 of the Bylaws for further details.

William B


I am a Registered Professional Land Surveyor and work for a small land surveying and mapping business called Absolute Land Surveying, Ltd., located in Plum, Texas. I am a 1999 graduate of the Geomatics Program and was the 6th graduate overall of the Program. I am also a member of the Texas Board of Professional Land Surveyors' Item Writing Committee that develops questions for the Board's legal and analytical exams.


  1. By the way, I agree to serve another term.

  2. I agree to serve another term as well.

  3. I agree to serve another term.

  4. Email to Michael Ouimet:

    Would you guys like to serve on the committee for another three years?

    Thanks for asking.  My travel schedule with work is getting to be such that I am going to need to decline.  My best to the University and the Board in going forward.

    Best regards,


  5. And this from Sterling Harris:

    I will not be able to serve on the board.  Do to my responsibilities at the agency I would not have the time or the travel funds to serve.  Please let me know if I need to respond with a formal resignation letter.

    Best Regards,

  6. So three of the five have agreed to a new three-year term.  These members will be reappointed by unanimous consent at the next meeting unless there are objections.

  8. We have great friends and support from all of you.
    I would like to suggest that we consider some others to join the AAC.
    We have some other alumni that would like to be considered and companies that hire our students that have contacted us.  As our degree plans have changed over time maybe alumni that have taken the more modern degree should be encouraged to participate in AAC.  They would have a better understanding of what is taught and what we can change to improve.  The company’s that hire the offshore students which at times is 50% is not represented in our AAC.
    I will send Billy a list of those people that have contacted us.
    Thanks :smile:

  9. Get the names to me.  We will be discussing this at the next meeting and we will put together a game plan for committee recruitment.
