Attention, California CEGs: Survey participation requested
AEG
AEG wants you to know about a critically important survey now in progress by the California Board for Professional Engineers, Land Surveys and Geologists. This survey will define the scope and content of California's CEG examination for the next five years. The more CEGs who participate, the better the survey results will be. Examination candidates deserve a fair and valid exam, and you can help make it that way by participating in the survey.

Please take part by responding to an email from the board or from Survey Monkey. You can also go to the board's website (the survey link is listed in the news column on the left side of the page). Your California CEG number will be required.
