Medicine Hat Branch

Message from the Chair

Welcome to the Medicine Hat Branch page!

Last year APEGA celebrated its 100th birthday. APEGA has demonstrated a century of resiliency in engineering and geoscience in Alberta. This past year has challenged us all; however, the Medicine Hat Branch is ready to tap into our resilient roots and embrace the bright future ahead. We will continue to provide our members with the opportunity to engage and connect, whether that be virtual or in person. The Medicine Hat Branch has put together a business plan full of professional development opportunities, networking events, and student outreach initiatives that strive to promote APEGA’s strategic goals.

I feel fortunate to be surrounded by an experienced and exhilarated Executive that is dedicated to promoting APEGA’s Vision and Mission in the community. There are many ways to engage with APEGA locally, please visit the Medicine Hat Branch Facebook Group, branch newsletters, and the APEGA events webpage for all upcoming events. If you have ever thought about getting involved in the Medicine Hat Branch, there is no better time! Please reach out to myself or any one of our Executive members, and we would be pleased to have you as a volunteer.
