Hit the Links with Your APEGA Branch
Teams of enthusiastic APEGA volunteers come together throughout Alberta, acting as member-cheerleaders, event managers, and connectors. They are the voice of the membership, bringing needs and desires to APEGA while delivering important updates to those in their area.
These teams comprise 15 volunteers in each region—the branch executives. They are an important and valued conduit, organizing and budgeting activities, encouraging engagement, and building relationships.
Each year, branch executives organize area-specific golf tournaments. These well-attended events are great for making connections and developing a network of fellow engineers and geoscientists in your area.
Play through the holes below to see which tournaments are happening in your area in summer 2022, and glean some tips from each branch on improving your game.
