Coordination between the surveyor and the civil engineer is an ongoing challenge that is fascinating and intriguing.  In this presentation, examples of engineering designs implemented will be 

presented and the means and methods to achieve these products will be discussed. Challenges, difficulties, and barriers 

both physical and technological that must be overcome in order to provide a customer-satisfied product will be highlighted.  Please join us as to hear from the current Sonoma County Surveyor, Mr. Leonard H. Gabrielson (Gabe) about his experience and lessons he learned having the opportunity to work both in the private and public sectors
