Calgary, Alberta – Mr. Dale Miller, P.Eng., President of the Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists and Geophysicists of Alberta (APEGGA), the largest professional association in Alberta, will officially visit Calgary on Wednesday, February 6, 2002.

Mr. Miller’s visit to Calgary, which has more professional engineers and geoscientists per capita than any other major city in Canada, will involve meetings with branch members in the city.

Calgary’s engineers and geoscientists play a vital role in economic growth. Calgary is the Western Canadian leader in the oil and gas industry and is the corporate headquarters for Suncor, TransAlta Energy, PanCanadian Energy, ATCO as well as several of the largest EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) companies in Canada.

These and numerous other corporations are registered as Permit Holders with APEGGA. All of their professional engineers, geologists and geophysicists must be registered with APEGGA to practice. Members are bound by a code of ethics and continually upgrade their skills.

The Association’s individual and corporate members play a significant role in every segment of Calgary’s economy, and their technical and management expertise ensure Alberta remains in the forefront of technological innovation. APEGGA members also regularly volunteer in community and professional activities.

APEGGA is responsible for regulating the practice of engineering, geology and geophysics in Alberta. APEGGA’s authority is derived from a statute of the province of Alberta, The Engineering, Geological and Geophysical Professions (EGGP) Act. Under the EGGP Act, licensure with APEGGA is required to practice engineering, geology or geophysics Alberta. APEGGA has served Albertans since 1920, now with over 36,000 members.
