General Information

APEGGA’s Annual Conference takes place in Edmonton April 22-24. The conference affords participants the opportunity to contribute to their professional association and participate in career building, networking and social events.

Making the Circle Stronger reflects APEGGA’s ongoing changes and initiatives in the area of inclusivity – the concept that there is a place inside the circle for all who practice engineering, geology and geophysics. Making the Circle Stronger also symbolizes the strength of the iron ring and earth ring and the important connections that exist within and between the professions. It is also evocative of the shape of the earth, the strength of cyclical hydrocarbons, each professional’s circle of influence in the community and of a meeting place where strength and opportunity are found.


Professional Development Seminars
Thursday and Friday, April 22 and 23
Shaw Conference Centre - Meetings Level
Registration 8:00-8:30 am
Seminars 8:30 am-4:30 pm (includes lunch)

The professional development seminars enable members to broaden their skill base and learn about trends that are important to their careers. Professional development seminars count towards APEGGA CPD requirements.

We are now offering a choice of six, two-day professional development streams. Participants in the PD program will be able to register in a full two-day stream of their choice or in separate half-day sessions to customize their range of learning.
