The members of the LSACTS Executive Board review and deliberate on a variety of issues related to Land Surveying. Once a subject has been researched, debated, and vetted, the formal White Paper is issued. These papers are organized in a conventional indexing format and once approved, includes the Council's stamp of approval.

A White Paper is an authoritative report, often used as a tool to introduce a specific issue. It is a great avenue for addressing an audience of a specific problem, stating a position, and proposing a solution. White papers are becoming powerful tools to help key decision-makers and influencers justify implementing solutions within a given industry.
