Memorandum of Understanding, Discussion Paper
and Joint Town Hall Meeting on new Regulatory Model

The ASET Council and the APEGGA Council each today unanimously approved a Memorandum of Understanding regarding a proposed new One Act, Two Associations regulatory model.
Members of ASET and APEGGA are invited to review the Memorandum of Understanding and the Discussion Paper (available online at www.aset.ab.ca  or www.apegga.org) and provide feedback via the website or by email. In addition, members of both Associations are invited to participate in a joint Town Hall meeting scheduled for February 6, 2007.

The Town Hall meeting will include a joint ASET-APEGGA presentation followed by a question and answer session. The six members of the ASET and APEGGA discussion team will be available to answer your questions and receive your feedback on the new regulatory model. Government-appointed discussion team mediator David Jones, Q.C. will act as the Town Hall moderator.

The event will be live in Edmonton. Two-way audio-visual will allow members of both Associations to participate directly in the following communities: Calgary, Cold Lake, Fort McMurray, Grande Prairie, Lethbridge, Lloydminster, Medicine Hat, Peace River and Red Deer.

Members unable to attend the Town Hall event in their community may view the event online and may submit questions directly to the moderator by email.

Members at the ten Town Hall locations will be given opportunities to ask questions of the discussion team members.
