CORPORATE-LEVEL PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE— THE OTHER TYPE OF MEMBERSHIP Geoscience and engineering are not exclusively the spheres of individuals. Companies and other organizations employ APEGA members to practise their professions, so they must be licensed, too. Through permits to practice, we ensure APEGA’s ethical and skill requirements reach corporate Alberta. On July 1, 2017, the first phase of an increase in permit holder dues took effect, to better reflect the costs associated with regulating them. A sliding scale now applies. Permit dues paid increase with the number of APEGA members employed. Responsible Members (RMs) in permit-holding companies help oversee their employers’ professional practice. At year-end, 7,896 APEGA professional members served as RMs.
