The PEG Magazine, now yourPEG
The PEG is the official publication of APEGA, published online for members and other stakeholders. A weekly electronic newsletter called the ePEG complements The PEG.
The PEG has been a fixture of APEGA since our earliest days. It has taken many forms, aligning itself with the information-consumption trends we have seen in our readership and the publishing industry as a whole. Created originally as a newsletter, it transitioned to a newspaper in 1969 and then to a glossy magazine in 2010. In 2017, as magazine publishing as a whole transitioned to a more digital world, The PEG ceased print production and became a totally digital magazine, but still with a layout reminiscent of a magazine.
In our centennial year, we are reimagining The PEG once again, this time as a section of the APEGA website, called yourPEG. It’s still in the early stages, but we’re proud of its progression and the initial feedback we’ve received has been positive.
yourPEG will continue to feature news and articles about things our members care about, such as:
- APEGA's regulatory work on behalf of the public and members
- APEGA's services and benefits that support members and their practices
- APEGA's progress in meeting strategic goals set by APEGA Council
- APEGA's members and their volunteering and professional successes
We hope you’ll join us for yourPEG. See some our latest articles below, and bookmark this page to stay current with our latest news and stories from the world of engineering and geoscience.
Your Dues Sustain Self-RegulationYour member dues enable the continued integrity and sustainability of the self-regulation of the engineering and geoscience professions in Alberta. Ensuring public safety and well-being through regulation is paramount for APEGA and our members.
Fluids Move Us ForwardProfessional engineer Dr. Amy Tsai’s passion for fluids began flowing early in her childhood. Now, she studies how fluids interact with surrounding surfaces and uses her findings to innovate our industries.
A Constitution for CommunityProfessional engineer Nancy Manchak has always been interested in her local and global community. Paired with an engineering degree, this trait has led her to support her profession through volunteerism with Women in Scholarship, Engineering, Science, and Technology, as a senator at the University of Alberta, and as a member of the Women in APEGA Advisory Group. These efforts earned her the 2022 Alberta Women's Science Network Athena Outstanding Volunteer award.
Algorithm for SuccessDr. Mohammad Moshirpour, P.Eng., is providing bona fide industry experiences for students as an associate professor and the newly coined software engineering teaching chair at the University of Calgary's Schulich School of Engineering. By creating partnered projects and mutual support in his lab, the Software Engineering Practice and Education Research Group, he hopes to marry the interests of the exploding tech industry in Alberta and the skills of his students.
