Volunteer with APEGA

APEGA - Professional Practice



The Opportunity


The Practice Standards Subcommittee (PSSC) is established by the Practice Review Board (PRB) and oversees the creation of, and revisions to, professional practice standards, guidelines, and bulletins for APEGA licensed professionals and permit holders. Through assessment and evaluation, PSSC ensures professional practice standards, guidelines, and bulletins hold paramount the health, safety, and welfare of the public and have regard for the environment. The PSSC performs this function through SMEs who are experienced licensed professionals.


The Impact


Regulations and best practices must reflect the current state of the industries to which they apply. As the engineering and geoscience professions continue to grow in Alberta, practice guidelines and standards must grow with them. By participating in this activity professional members have an opportunity to share their expertise and help shape the association’s suggested best practices.


Time Commitment

 3-year term, approximately 30-40 hours total.
