So what does the P. Geo. brand mean anyway? My thoughts on professionalism

During my year as President, a lot of members have told me what they think about APGO, and one thing that seems to really confuse people is how the role of being a professional meshes with the role of being a geoscientist.
For the first 30 years of my career, I was a mere geologist. I was trained in university to be a scientist, not a professional. Students today are still trained to be scientists rather than professionals, and now that we are a regulated profession, I see this as a problem. But that's a different story.
