The NYSCPG was formed in 1995.  The Council’s mission includes advancing the geological sciences as a profession; promoting the protection of the public and the environment through professional practice; establishing high standards of ethical conduct; promoting the legal standing of geologists through legislation; and protecting the integrity of the profession.

NYSCPG President John Nadeau will present the legislative status of the bill to regulate the practice of geology in NYS. He will review the history of the licensure effort, the current status of that effort, and the plan to get the geology practice bill passed in 2014. John will discuss the various stakeholders and relationships, the licensure of individuals and the implications to practicing geologists, and what it means to professional entities and corporations practicing in New York State. John also will present the process for the bill to become a law and Council’s vision for the future of NYSCPG.
