Mapping School 2018

We are pleased to announce that the 2018 NCPMA Mapping School will be held August 6-10 at the Hawthorne Inn & Conference Center in Winston Salem, NC.

Online Registration

We will be offering the Regular and Advanced classes held every year, as well as the Advanced Special Topics Seminar designed for students who have already completed both certification-level Mapping School classes, but are attending school for continuing education credits. The Advanced Topics seminar, first offered in 2015, was a great success and received overwhelmingly positive feedback.  Current plans are to have all three classes again next year as well.

Tuition Fees:

  • NCPMA Members: $285*
  • Non-Member Fee: $320* (includes membership for the remainder of 2018)

*Tuition Fees are increased slightly from last year,  and include the Monday night President’s Reception and lunch on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
Attendees are expected to print their own class manuals, which are available for download in advance of the school. Attendees of the Advanced Topics Seminar will need to download the current Cadastral Manual available at the same page.  Download Manuals Here 
The Registration deadline is July 27, 2018.
