Over the past few years, a number of members
have indicated that they would like to see APEGGA do more
to help them find professional development opportunities.
Well, we have listened. In partnership with the University
of Alberta's Institute of Professional Development, the National
Research Council and Terra Prime Developments, over the past
six months we have developed the PEGGasus website.
A separate article on this page deals with the formal introduction
and launch of PEGGasus later this month. Your Professional
Development Department encourages you to take the message
to heart, visit the PEGGasus website and try out its services
after Nov. 24.
There is no charge to use PEGGasus. That means you risk nothing
by trying PEGGasus, yet you could benefit immensely from professional
development opportunities it identifies for you.
We trust the concept is right and that PEGGasus will meet
your needs. However, please send us your comments on what
you think of it and what we can do to make it even more valuable.
If there are further professional development providers you
feel need to be represented on PEGGasus, let us know that
