Fort McMurray Branch

Message from the Chair

Welcome to the Fort McMurray Branch page, representing APEGA members residing in 17 communities within the Northern Alberta region.

The Branch Executive team strives to be the members' voice to APEGA and APEGA's voice in our community. We accomplish this by providing professional development opportunities, social events, networking, and so much more to APEGA members.

We inspire future engineers and geoscientists by supporting educational events such as science nights, career presentations, and the APEGA Science Olympics.  

The branch through its University Outreach program brings an increased understanding and awareness of the profession, code of ethics, and life experiences from practicing professionals to first-year engineering students at Keyano College.

We are an integral part of the community we serve in; we take pride in protecting our peoples and our communities.

Branch Executive

APEGA’s branch executive committees are an integral part of APEGA operations and are governed by the branch manual. The committee includes up to 15 appointed volunteers, including members-at-large and five core positions: chair, past-chair, vice-chair, treasurer, and secretary. The branch chair is responsible for running the branch. To ensure consistency among branches, chairs from all branches meet quarterly to discuss branch governance and business.
