The Long Island Association of Professional Geologists is a NYS Not For Profit organization registered as an IRS 501(c)6. The LIAPG is a business league of professional geologists, environmental professionals, and associated business persons on Long Island and in the NYC Metropolitan Area. We are located in New York State’s region having the largest number of professionals holding Professional Geologist licenses.
We would like be a strong resource for information and connections between professionals in our community and those academics and students interested in the geological sciences and its application to the many related fields in our industry group [e.g., geological sciences applicable to Natural Resource Use & Protection, Environmental Health, Environmental Protection, Environmental Hazards, Environmental Justice, Energy Resources, and Climate Resilience; as well as applicable to Earth Science Education at the secondary and primary school levels].
As an organization of professional geologists and other environmental professionals we seek to reach out to the departments’ educators and all students interested in entering our industry including those interested in pursuing the NYS Professional Geologist licensure and future engineers seeking to concentrate in the geological sciences. We are reaching out to all NYS schools of higher education in the earth sciences and geosciences because we want to develop an active and robust connection between our professionals and the State’s undergraduate and graduate programs, department research areas, and students’ geosciences program groups. We are also hoping to develop an active interest in supporting our organization and its mission by seeking speakers and presenters from undergraduate and graduate Earth Sciences and Geosciences departments to present and promote their school’s programs, recent student projects, recent research projects, school events, etc.
Finally, we are always seeking enthusiastic and talented volunteers to assist our board members, who are professionals within LIAPG’s community, in developing and executing our group projects, organizing and presenting webinar and live meetings, and posting on our website and social media outlets.
If interested, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or LIAPG President Chris Wenczel, PG at email@example.com. Visit our website at https://www.liapg.org/ and follow us on LinkedIn. We always welcome your comments and questions, and look forward to hearing back from you.
