A Compliance Committee meeting is scheduled for 1 pm, Tuesday, October 6, 2020, at The Petroleum Club of Shreveport, 416 Travis Street, Shreveport, Louisiana. The agenda for the meeting is available here.

 

Seal Use Rules

The rules for seal use appear in the October 2019 issue of the Louisiana Register and can be found here (rules start at the bottom of page 1468 and end on page 1469). These rules went into effect immediately upon publication, so please make a point of reading them if you have not already done so. Also, be aware that the new rules did not modify Chapter 15, section 1501(B)(4), regarding electronic seals and document transmission, of the originally adopted rules, so that subsection is still in effect. You can access all approved rules, including the new ones, on the LBOPG.org website here.


 

Online Ethics Presentation for Continuing Education Credit

Because many of our licensees have reported problems in fulfilling the one-hour ethics requirement, the board has agreed to post a presentation on the website that will meet that requirement. The link to access the presentation is here.

Honoring Our Nation's Military Personnel

The board unanimously agrees with 2018 Louisiana Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 83, which urges professional boards such as LBOPG to assist military-trained personnel and their families through the application and licensing process in an expeditious manner. The entire resolution can be read here. Board members and staff of the Louisiana Board of Professional Geoscientists look forward to working with military personnel and their families to expedite the licensing process to the best of our ability within the law. If you are in the military or are a member of a military family and need assistance to complete the application for a professional geoscientist license in Louisiana, please contact us.
