TAPS Ladies Auxiliary

The Ladies Auxiliary was established in 1993 with the main objective to support and promote the surveying profession. Since that time the auxiliary has strived to increase involvement of surveyors and their spouses in the TAPS organization. The auxiliary works to raise funds each year to support various surveying scholarship funds. The auxiliary also strives to provide a fun and diverse program for the ladies at the annual convention through scheduled activities. We invite you to become a member of the auxiliary and enjoy the fun and fellowship.

Auxiliary dissolved March 2010.

Reestablished March 2016.

Officers are:
