Why join the APEGNB Council?
APEGNB exists to administer the Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act through the regulation of the professions.
As a Council member you will help to set and monitor the delivery of our strategic plan. Through this leadership role, you will contribute to the improvement of regulation and the engineering and geoscience professions in New Brunswick.
Becoming an APEGNB Council member
Council members are leaders who commit themselves to administering the Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act through the regulation of the professions, establishment of standards of knowledge and skill for the practice of the professions and establishing standards of professional ethics. This is all done in the public interest.
APEGNB’s Council includes nominated representatives from the five provincial branches, as well as two at-large representatives, a geoscientist and the Vice-President. These positions are in addition to New Brunswick’s representatives to Engineers Canada and Geoscientists Canada, two public appointees, the President and Past President. In general, the appointment is two years, renewable.
The Role of Council
The role of the APEGNB Council is to provide strategic direction and oversee the management of the Association. Council provides this leadership with due consideration of long-term impacts and a clear distinction between the Council and staff roles and responsibilities.
It is the responsibility of Council members to be informed of issues and trends affecting, or likely to affect, APEGNB, the professions or the public. Nominated Council members act as a liaison between Council and the registrants. Council members are expected to understand and monitor the Association’s financial affairs, and to ensure the Association is complying with all legal and regulatory requirements.
The APEGNB Council meets six times per year. It is expected that Council members will make a reasonable effort to attend all meetings and be prepared by reading agendas, minutes, reports and other documentation required to actively participate.
