Central Alberta Branch News & Events

October 12 | President’s Visit—Central Alberta

Beginning this month, President Nima Dorjee, P.Eng., will travel to each of APEGA's Alberta branches to engage with members and permit holders. He will share information about APEGA's regulatory initiatives and current member-focused activities, as well as listen to members to learn more about their work and what matters to them.

The President's Visits are excellent opportunities for members to receive relevant, profession-related updates, expand their networks, and participate in valuable discussions about engineering and geoscience. Register by October 4.
