As published in ALS News upon receiving his commission in 1997

Kingston, Ontario welcomed Fred Rogers into the world in June 1948. Fred attended Ladner Secondary School in Vancouver, BC, graduating in 1966, and went on to spend three years at the University of British Columbia.

Articles were served under Bruce Winton, ALS, and commission as an Alberta Land Surveyor was received on March 27, 1997. Fred is also a member of the Corporation of Land Surveyors of the Province of British Columbia, commission date July 1982.

The topic of the technical report submitted as part of the qualifying examination was "An Historical Study of the Railway Spiral Replacement Curve in Alberta," a portion of which will be contained in the ALSA Manual of Standard Practice.

Fred's surveying experience has taken him from eastern Canada (Toronto), to Nigeria, to British Columbia, and then to Grande Prairie, Alberta where he now is the surveyor responsible for McElhanney's recently established branch office. Fred is a member of the Grande Prairie Chamber of Commerce and, in 1996-1997, served on the ALSA Standards Committee.
