BRANCH EVENTS HELD
Robert Arthur P. Eng., Branch member at large, attended the Medicine Hat
College Awards Night on November 9, 2000 and personally handed out the
APEGGA Scholarship Award to a first year transfer Engineering student.
Vern Fedor P. Eng. did an APEGGA Introduction presentation to the first
year Medicine Hat College students on November 17th as part of the "Orientation
to Engineering" course. Mr. Peter Wilson of the College has been
contacting us frequently asking for our assistance to track down and supply
names of engineers with different disciplines and skills to come into
his class and speak. To the best of our ability we have been helping him
out and three of our Branch Exec members are going into the class.
The next Branch Meeting of the General Members is scheduled for 28th November.
After that it is the President's Visit on February 27th , 2001.
EXECUTIVE MEETINGS HELD
Our last Branch Executive meeting was held on October 26th, 2000. We decided
at the meeting our Branch Exec structure is outdated. The present Branch
Chair will come up with a new structure more in line with the new responsibilities
and tasks that have been handed down from APEGGA Edmonton Office and according
to what some Branch members have expressed as desirable.
Our next Branch Executive meeting is scheduled for January, 2001. Our
Branch AGM is set for March 21, 2001.
