Two of Global Raymac’s very own, Bob Wallace (A.L.S.) and Katie Wallace (A.L.S.A Pupil), were guest speakers at Eclipse College on Wednesday December 2nd, as they provided their knowledge and expertise to articling students and interested ALS’s. Focusing on Real Property Reports, Bob and Katie covered topics from the history of the RPR to differences in modern day Municipal Compliance requirements. The presentation was delivered via a live stream format, reaching viewers from across the province and the nation. All those at Eclipse College were grateful to receive the insight from our RPR veterans whose talents as guest speakers will no doubt be in high demand!
Global Raymac Surveys would like to give a warm welcome to our new Project Manager, Sandra (Sandy) Davies.
