Nigerian Institution of Surveyors
The Nigerian Institution of Surveyors is arguably one of the oldest organised professional bodies in Nigeria. NIS started in 1934 and its foundations were laid in Lagos State as the “Licensed Surveyors Association” under the able leadership of the late Nationalist, Herbert Macaulay. In 1960, the name was changed to the “Land Surveyors Association of Nigeria” with the state Late Surv. C.T. Olumide elected as its first president. Late C.T. Olumide is honoured every year by the Institution with a memorial Lecture.
