APEGGA Annual Conference
To Soar Beyond Boundaries

Public Relations Coordinator

Engineers and geoscientists are essential elements in the process of translating scientific discovery into practical and profitable applications. Their rigors, calculations, aspirations and, of course, their dreams become the tools society and the economy depend upon.

The theme for the 2002 APEGGA Annual General Conference, April 25-27 at the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton, is Infinite Possibilities Unlimited Potential. What better words could describe engineering, geology and geophysics.

The conference will explore the possibilities and potential of the professionals who make up Alberta's largest association. It comprises three key elements -- the Annual General Meeting and Luncheon, two days of professional development seminars and the Summit Awards® - and is a prime opportunity for members to network, share insight and learn more about the professions and their professional association. It is a forum for establishing, maintaining and improving contacts and cooperation between engineers and geoscientists from across Alberta.

The Annual General Meeting, for the first time being held on a Saturday, April 27, provides members with the opportunity to vote on matters of concern, hear issues of importance relating to APEGGA and present motions for Council to consider. The meeting is followed by a luncheon featuring a guest speaker.

Professional development seminars will be held on Thursday, April 25, and Friday, April 26. These offer members the latest information on technical and practical developments in the professions and can be counted toward PD requirements.

In response to member feedback and the call for more in-depth information, this year APEGGA is introducing two full-day PD sessions. Thus, members have the opportunity to deeply explore key topics: contract management and project management.

The Summit Awards® Gala, on Thursday, April 25, provides the perfect forum to recognize excellence in the practices of engineering, geology and geophysics and the contributions APEGGA members make to their professions and community. The highly anticipated annual social event brings together engineers, geologists, geophysicists, educators, government officials and business people, who all contribute to the success of this province.

And a new addition to the conference is a display of member artwork. See stories this page and page 9, (click here) as well as registration information on page 3 (click here). For more information on the conference, please refer to the insert in this issue of The PEGG or visit the website at
