Quarterly Photo Contest Reminder
The first quarter photo contest theme is “Geology of Pennsylvania.” The PCPG website will be getting a makeover this year and we look forward to decorating it with some of your photos. Email your submission to PCPG Board Member Kurt Friehauf, PhD, P.G., with the subject line: PCPG photo contest. If you are selected as a winner, we will contact you to gather your ‘story’ and mailing address. Note that by submitting a photo you are giving PCPG permission to use the photo in the PCPG Newsletter, PCPG website, or other PCPG media (proper credit will be given). Don’t wait, the contest closes in less than two weeks - March 5th.
Act 53 of 2020 impacts professional licensure in Pennsylvania
Posted 10 July 2020: Professionals that may have previously been denied licensure due to criminal history will now be permitted to have their application considered by the respective boards. Senate Bill 637 (PN 1815), signed by the Governor on July 1 as Act 53 of 2020, requires occupational licensure boards and commissions to apply one common set of rules when considering whether to deny, suspend, or revoke a license on the basis of a criminal conviction.
