The Great Recession has been felt by geoprofessionals, just like everyone else. Sometimes it feels like the news about the business outlook for our profession is always so gloomy. So it's nice to hear some optimism from ASFE President Kurt Fraese in his remarks at the ASFE/GBA Fall Conference. He sees much potential for us:
