Lethbridge Branch

Message from the Chair

On behalf of APEGA’s Lethbridge Branch Executive, welcome to our Home Page!

The Lethbridge Branch represents our Engineering and Geoscience Professional Members and Members-in-Training in 66 communities in southwest Alberta, centered in Lethbridge.

Our Mission is to implement APEGA’s Strategic Plan within our Region, which will be achieved by:

  • Communicating and championing APEGA initiatives to our members and gaining feedback from our members that we can provide to APEGA Council and staff on matters concerning our professions.
  • Positively supporting APEGA’s mandate to serve and protect the Public, through the delivery of continuing professional development events and communication of APEGA’s Practice Standards and Guidelines.
  • Engaging in community outreach, including program support for the University of Lethbridge Engineering Transfer program and science outreach to grade school students
  • Enhancing the profile of our professions within our communities
  • Facilitating networking and social activities for members including our annual golf tournament

Our Branch Executive members are dedicated volunteers who have a passion for serving our professions and our communities. We want hear from you! Please contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions, want to know more about Branch events, or if you want to get involved.
