Summit Award® Nominations

September 8, 2006

Re:  2007 APEGGA Summit Award® Nominations

As a Responsible Member for your firm, you are in a leadership position.  You are concerned not only with ensuring your firm’s work is done to the highest standards, but also with retention of your key people and the reputation and promotion of your firm.  Pride in one’s work is a hallmark of the professional, and recognition of a job well done is a strong factor in employee retention.

As professional engineers, geologists and geophysicists, we APEGGA members take pride in our work and in our professions. Pride comes from the knowledge that we have done a good job and also through recognition of achievement by our peers. Each year, APEGGA presents the Summit Awards® to recognize the achievements of outstanding members and to celebrate our professions.

By now you will have seen the insert in the July edition of The PEGG calling for nominations for the 2007 Summit Awards®. Do you know an individual or a group who deserve recognition for leadership and excellence in the practices of engineering, geology or geophysics? Is there someone you know who has made an outstanding contribution to the professions or to the community? This is your personal invitation to consider nominating that person or project for one of these prestigious awards.

Online you can find a package that summarizes each of the 11 Summit Awards®. Take a moment to consider which colleagues you could celebrate. If you know of a deserving person or project, you can access more detailed award information and nomination forms in one of two ways: visit APEGGA’s website at www.apegga.org and choose “scholarships and awards” under the members section, or call APEGGA’s head office.

Award nominations are accepted throughout the year, but to be considered for the 2007 Summit Awards®, we need to receive your nomination form by September 30, 2006.

Thank you, and if you have any questions, please contact Ross Plecash, P.Eng., Director, Corporate & Member Affairs at (780) 426-3990 or (800) 661-7020.

Yours truly,     

Andrew Vogan, P.Geol.
