Peace Region Branch
Message from the Chair
Greetings from the APEGA Peace Region Branch. We offer a chance for professional engineers, professional geoscientists, and members in training to become involved in promoting our profession to the Peace Region, and to network with fellow members. From our Executive Branch volunteer groups in both Grande Prairie and Peace River, we offer opportunities within the region to get together and be involved in events, including:
- golf tournaments
- junior and senior high science Olympics
- professional development courses and luncheons
- elementary and community science nights
- member social mixers
- president visits and member induction evenings
- P.Eng. application information sessions
- high school in-class information sessions
We hold meetings every second Tuesday of the month, alternating between lunch and evenings at Aztec Engineering office, and the first Thursday evening of the Month at the Peace Regional Library. If you are interested in getting involved, please email [email protected].
Every volunteer is important and makes us better.
The Branch Executives are members elected at the Annual General Meeting of each branch. They are governed by the Branch manual.
