PROTECTING PE - HELP US BUILD THE CASE We consider protection of your restricted titles a critical part of our regulatory role. APEGGA’s work in this area adds value to membership – while building and maintaining the public’s trust in the various engineering and geoscience titles. To that end, APEGGA is opposing the granting of “PE” as a Canadian trademark to the Alberta Institute of Power Engineers.

Salary SurveyGIVE YOUR COO A SALARY SURVEY NUDGE You know it as the annual salary survey. We call it the Value of Professional Services. By whatever name, the next version is in your court.

APEGGA recently sent out nearly 1,300 surveys to permit holding companies – compared with about 750 last year. Every permit holder with two or more staff was mailed a survey.

The more companies that participate, the more valid the information. We urge you to do your part by asking your HR person or COO to fill out the survey.

Was your company missed? Contact Ross Plecash, P.Eng., Director of Corporate and Member Affairs, at rplecash@apegga.org.
