Jim Roberts was an environmental professional who committed a tremendous amount of time to NAEP and its members. He always stated that you have to participate in the profession in order to benefit the most from it. He wrote countless articles and encouraged members to engage in discussions on environmental topics including environmental ethics. He felt that ethics was important, considering the work that environmental professionals perform and the many factors and players on both sides of an issue that could sway a science-based decision. He also felt that adherence to the NAEP Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice for Environmental Professionals was paramount for environmental professionals. In 2003, Jim Roberts was named a Fellow of NAEP for his lifetime of contributions to the organization. Jim passed away in November 2007. To memorialize his contributions to NAEP and the environmental profession in general, NAEP developed the Jim Roberts Memorial Scholarship.
