Vermilion River Branch

Message from the Chair

Welcome to the Vermilion River Branch (VRB) page. Our branch's operations are based in Alberta's border city, Lloydminster.

The VRB offers services and outreach on a volunteer basis to APEGA members and others in the city and surrounding communities.

Our volunteer members are always excited to get involved in our community and our profession. This involvement includes organizing networking and professional development events, participating in science Olympics at local schools, and fostering university enrolment in engineering and geoscience programs.

Enhancing your membership experience requires interaction and feedback. We welcome you to share your ideas via email or in person by attending one of our regularly occurring branch meetings.

If you are interested in learning more about the VRB and how you can get involved, please contact us.
