Professional Practice Department

Volunteer Positions Available

APEGGA's Professional Practice Department is looking for APEGGA engineers, geologists and geophysicists to fill vacancies on the following committees and boards.

Most positions are for three-year terms. Volunteers are expected to attend committee meetings regularly - approximately 6 to 8 times each year. Meetings are normally one-half day each. Meeting locations usually alternate between APEGGA's Edmonton and Calgary offices and are also conducted by video conference. Occasional travel will be required to attend face-to-face meetings. Authorized travel expenses will be reimbursed. In addition to meeting attendance, volunteers will be required to commit time to certain additional duties depending on the particular committee.

Summaries of the committees' activities can be found in the Annual Reports on APEGGA's web site at www.APEGGA.org. The web site also provides each committee's terms of reference.

Practice Review Board

Minimum of 10 years of practice experience required. Duties also include conducting reviews of individuals' and permit holders' professional practices, and possible participation on subcommittees conducting general inquiries.

Discipline Committee

Duties also include sitting as a member of a discipline hearing panel and/or serving as case manager on matters that are decided without the need for a formal hearing.

Practice Standards Committee

Registration as a permit holder's Responsible Member is preferable. Duties also include participation on subcommittees for the development of practice standards and guidelines.

Environment Committee

Duties also include preparation of draft position papers on environmental issues and development of practice standards or guidelines.

Please submit an application indicating the committee for which you wish to be considered with your name, address, phone, fax, email and employer information. Include your field of practice or interest and indicate your applicable experience or expertise. If you have served on APEGGA committees before, note which ones and when.

Forward your application by July 31 to:

Ray Chopiuk, P.Eng.
Director Professional Practice

Edmonton AB T5J 4A2
By fax: (780) 426-1877

We greatly appreciate all applications. However, not all volunteers can be placed since committees require a continuity of experience, and specific representation from the three professions or specific disciplines may need to be accommodated.
