Your organization can select a level that reflects your stature in the engineering and geoscience community and your commitment to the professional you employ. All sponsorship levels now include the Summit Awards ®. For more information call (780) 426-3990, 1-800-661-7020, or e-mail Barb Robinson at brobinson@apegga.org

Crystal Ballroom, Fairmont Palliser Hotel

Join us for a look back to the time of APEGGA’s inception, the 1920s, when life was much simpler. No computers, e-mail or voicemail! Experience the roaring 20s in our speakeasy. Go back to the time of bathtub gin, smoky jazz and the move from silent films to “talkies”. Have a chance at winning some great prizes by dressing in period costume (visit the APEGGA website at www.apegga.org/AC2005 for costume ideas.)

Dress: casual/period costume (optional)  

Thinking of dressing up for the fun night and wondering what fashions were in vogue in the 1920s? Go to these websites to view images or read up on fashion during that era:
