Dwight Ball, P. Geo. Receives the 2007 Canadian Professional Geoscientist Award  

The Canadian Council of Professional Geoscientists (CCPG) has announced that Dwight Ball, P.Geo. of Fredericton, New Brunswick has received the 2007 Canadian Professional Geoscientist Award. 

Dwight has not only had a long and outstanding career as a professional geoscientist, but he has also served as a tireless and dedicated volunteer to CCPG, the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of New Brunswick (APEGNB) and his community. 

A graduate in geology from the University of New Brunswick - B.Sc. (1970) and M.Sc. (1975), he was initially employed as a geologist with the NB Department of Natural Resources, before becoming founder and partner of Three-D Geoconsultants. He is currently executive director of the Office of Research Services at the University of New Brunswick. 

At CCPG, Dwight served as a member of the founding Board of Directors of CCPG and in 2000-2001 was CCPG Chair (now the office of CCPG President). He provided important formative leadership to CCPG as chair of the Canadian Geoscience Standards Board - a national standing committee of CCPG, and later as chair of CCPG's international affairs committee. 

Dwight also contributed to his profession locally as one of the founding members of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of New Brunswick. 

This Award is given to recognize the achievements of an individual, in his or her capacity as a registered Professional Geoscientist, who has made an outstanding contribution to the development and practice of professional geoscience and who has advanced public recognition of the profession in Canada. 

To be eligible for the award a nominee must meet a number of specified criteria, which include: 

  • a solid career as a professional geoscientist, 
  • an outstanding record of voluntary service to the community, and 
  • service to one of the provincial or territorial professional associations which regulate geoscience in Canada or to CCPG.
