The KAM Education Committee also hosts training sessions based on the needs of its membership throughout the year. KAM members pay discounted registration fees for all class offerings and the annual conference.
  • Skill Recognition. KAM provides a Designation Program designed to raise the professional standards of mapping personnel and recognize those with superior skills. Members are also eligible to receive any of our annual awards that recognize professional accomplishments in several categories.
  • Keeping Informed. Our newsletter, Metes and Bounds, provides timely information about mapping issues and informative meetings at the state and regional levels.
