Visiting Professional Program: VPPs and a Section Liaison Wanted!

We’re looking for a Visiting Professional Program (VPP) Liaison to oversee the VPP program in our section as well as VPP volunteers to participate in the program.

The goal of the VPP is to increase advocacy for AEG and the professions of engineering geology, environmental geology, and related fields to the general public.  This can be accomplished by AEG members who volunteer their time in order to share their experiences with other professionals, community members, students, and others who may benefit from the services AEG and its members provide.

You don’t need to have your own prepared presentations! AEG has put together some informational presentations that are “ready-made” and geared toward students and the public.  If you have projects or personal experience to share, that can be added.

The VPP liaison will coordinate with both VPP volunteers and potential venues to set up specific activities.  If you are interested in this worthwhile role or to volunteer as a VPP, please contact our chair.
