President’s Letter, September 2019


APDC reconvened its regular board meetings in September after a two month break over the summer. Our accomplishments in the first part of 2019 include adopted revisions to the by-laws and selection of a preferred alternative design for a new APDC logo.  The final logo design should be ready over the next months as we prepare for outreach to our legislators in early 2020.  Our legislative committee is currently planning APDC’s positions to be communicated to our state legislators during the 2020 fly-in.  Position topics are likely to be centered around state budget considerations.

This summer, the board of Architects, Engineers and Land Surveyors (AELS) adopted an extension for licensees that need extra time to achieve their HSW continuing education/ professional development hours.  The one month extension will cost $50.  2020 is a professional license renewal year, so consider if you’ve amassed the required 24 HSW related hours as 2019 comes to a close.  You can review renewal fees on AELS’s webpage.  Note that the AELS board has to positions opening up in March of 2020.  To see a full listing of AELS Board appointments and expiration dates, please see the Board Roster, located on the Alaska Boards and Commissions website. If you have any questions about serving,  contact Alysia Jones, Executive Administrator for more information:
