Yellowhead Branch

Message From the Chair

Thank you for visiting the APEGA webpage for the Yellowhead Branch. The Branch is unique in that it comprises of engineers and geoscientists from varying professions spread across different three main towns in Northern Alberta, including Whitecourt, Edson, and Hinton. Our primary objective is to setup a welcoming forum for all engineers and geoscientists in their respective professions to seek questions about their APEGA professional practice, and to provide great networking opportunities to all who are interested.

We the members of the executive team, always strive to make the Yellowhead Branch more dynamic and responsive to the needs of our members-at-large and always welcome feedback on how we can do our jobs better. We welcome all engineers and geoscientists from all disciplines who wish to join us in our various events posted on the APEGA website.
