November 21, 2000 to February 7, 2001
BRANCH MEETINGS HELD
We held only one General Branch Meeting on November 28, 2000. Guest speaker
was Ken Torrence P. Eng. who talked about his involvement as an engineering
consultant on the Automated Laser Eye Treatment (ALET) Project. Turn out
was very good with about forty people attending and we made a small profit
instead of taking a small loss. Next General Branch Meeting will be the
President's Visit on February 27th 2001.
BRANCH EVENTS HELD
We have not held or done any other events except as noted above.
We are planning our annual College First Year Engineering Students/ Prof.
Engineers Mixer Night for early March. Exact date is not set yet. This
is a good opportunity for us older Engineers to indoctrinate the younger
Our Annual General Meeting is scheduled for 28th March, 2001. We will
have a guest speaker, the General Manager from the St. Mary's Irrigation
District. We will also have a new slate of candidates running for the
Some engineers have been volunteering as judges for the upcoming Regional
EXECUTIVE MEETINGS HELD
Our last Branch Executive meeting was held on January 10th, 2001. We discussed
our Branch Exec structure and the proposal for change by the present Branch
Chair. Purpose was to have a structure more in line with the new responsibilities
and tasks that have been handed down from APEGGA Edmonton Office. There
was opposition to the proposal and therefore no change was made. It now
will be up to the incoming president to cope with the multitude of tasks.
We also discussed the proposed President's Honorarium and made suggestions.
Our next Branch Executive meeting is scheduled for February 15, 2001.
