Retired Members

Council may, upon application, confer retired membership in the Association upon any person who has been an Alberta Land Surveyor for at least one year.

A retired member is not eligible to engage in the practice of land surveying in Alberta.


In order for the Alberta Land Surveyors' Association to accept an application for retired membership, the Council must be satisfied that the practitioner has no outstanding issues or concerns that may adversely affect the public.

The Council will also want to know where field notes will be kept and ensure the practitioner has arranged for appropriate professional liability insurance for past acts.

The practitioner will be asked for the effective date of their retired membership. Applications cannot be back-dated.
