The PEG Magazine, now yourPEG

The History of the PEGThe 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.

  • The Ingredients of an Engineer

    Already a tenuous time of unknowns for every new graduate, entering the workforce while living through a global pandemic brought a new element of ambiguity for Nima Macci, E.I.T. She was looking for answers and direction, which she found at APEGA's Emerging Professionals Summit in 2020.
  • Braiding Strong Engineers

    Weaving materials together to create strong, resilient, and useful products is professional engineer Dr. Jason Carey's specialty. He is a braiding expert.
