December 9 - 13, 2019 - ASBOG/AIPG Call for Papers

The National Association of State Boards of Geology (ASBOG) along with the American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG) invite you to submit an abstract for consideration for a session on licensure and certification to be held at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting in San Francisco, California from December 9-13, 2019.

ASBOG and AIPG are seeking presentations on the importance of professional licensure and certification in the geosciences.  As graduating students and early career professionals try to establish their careers, it is important to know where licensure is required to work as a geoscientist and what sectors see professional certification as necessary and useful. 

Please consider submitting an abstract for the session: You Have Your Degree, Now What? - A Discussion on Global Licensure and Certification in the Geosciences

Session ID#: 77358

Session Description: In many parts of the world, geoscientists working in their profession must be licensed or certified to comply with requirements intended to ensure public safety and welfare. Competency to practice is determined by each jurisdiction or organization through criteria including education, verified experience, and in some cases standard examinations. Where licensure requirements are absent, geoscientists may need to meet certification credentials as a measure of professional standing. This session will provide crucial information on licensure and certification for students and early career professionals as well as faculty who are preparing the next generation of global geologists.

For more information on the session please contact: 
Will Ernst (ASBOG)
Douglas Rambo (ASBOG)
Aaron Johnson (AIPG)
