Message from the Chair
The Edmonton branch welcomes all members to help grow the branch in various forms within Alberta and beyond.
The Edmonton branch executive is made up of professionals of varying experiences, backgrounds and disciplines volunteering to help promote the role of engineering and geoscience in the public realm. The executive undertakes many different initiatives to engage our members. Our reach is only as far as you, our members, are interested in participating. Whether it be social events, outreach events, various regulatory volunteer positions, or legislative forums, there are many ways for each of us to contribute to the success, effectiveness, and purpose of our association, APEGA.
The mission of the Edmonton branch is to highlight the value of engineering and geoscience as professions and to reinforce this role to the public and our community via our members. We will help make this value resonate so we can go beyond the output of our small executive team. If our members endorse our mission, this branch will have achieved its intent to promote engineering and geoscience and extend its importance to past, present, and future generations of leaders. It is the focus of the branch executive to provide opportunities to showcase our members passion so that they remain committed to their professions—all while still having fun!
We look forward to working and engaging with our members to help each person identify more deeply with their profession and continue their efforts toward public safety, innovation, and social good.
The Branch Executives are members elected at the Annual General Meeting of each branch. They are governed by the Branch manual.
