The Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA) is proud to announce that George Eynon, P.Geo., will become APEGA’s 100th president at the 2019 annual general meeting in Calgary on Friday, April 26.

Eynon, a professional geoscientist, has worked in oil and gas exploration and development in Canada and internationally for more than two decades. He has moved through increasingly senior technical, management, and executive positions, providing energy resources consulting and research services.

APEGA will also welcome re-elected council members Manon Plante, P.Eng.; and Jason Vanderzwaag, P.Eng.; as well as newly elected council members David Johnson, P.Geo.; and Melanie Popp, P.Eng.

They will join their colleagues who are continuing their terms: Bob Rundle, P.Eng.; Darren Hardy, P.Eng.; RaeAnne Leach, P.Eng.; Emily Zhang, P.Eng.; Claudia Villeneuve, P.Eng.; Jennifer Enns, P.Eng.; Tim Hohm, P.Eng.; and Walter Kozak, P.Eng.
