ACTION ITEMS AND INITIATIVES

The following is a compiled summary of actions items and/or objectives/initiatives.

The most important issues facing the NYSCPG are:

  • How to help the membership and other fellow PGs and Geologists-in-Training (Intern Geologists) understand the importance of protecting the profession; and
  • How to revitalize the NYSCPG to better serve its constituents and attract new members/sponsors.

To do so, we plan to implement the following:

  • Continue to update our fact sheets and FAQs;
  • Continue to revisit and update our by-laws;
  • Review and approve providers of continuing education course and activities for professional development hours (PDHs);
  • Sponsor continuing education courses for PDHs;
  • Solicit more committee members from the membership;
  • Continue to monitor proposed legislation that may impact the profession;
  • Create and fund a paid Administrator/Executive Director position;
  • Continue to each out to college and university students (via webinars and/or in-person meetings) to educate students on the importance of and opportunities arising from licensure;
  • Continue to host/participate in more professional seminars; and,
  • Maintain a database of New York State-Licensed Intern Geologists and Professional Geologists.

This is an ambitious list of goals/initiatives, but some of these initiatives are already underway or have been completed! However, because all of the NYSCPG Board of Directors (BOD) has full-time jobs, they cannot do this alone. We need your help and we need your input and support. If you have any suggestions, comments, praises, criticisms, questions, or you just want to lend a hand, please contact the BOD (nyscouncilpg@gmail.com).






NYSCPG is the principal organization of professional geologists responsible for the advancement of the competent and ethical practice of geology in New York State.
If you are a geologist working or studying in New York State, we invite you to join the NYSCPG. We also welcome and appreciate academic and corporate sponsorship. Keep current, keep connected!
