Yellowhead Branch

Message From the Chair

Welcome to the Yellowhead Branch page!

The Yellowhead Branch has been inactive for over 10 years and was recently revived in April 2016.

The Branch is comprised of APEGA Members that have one main thing in common: love for their professions. We are all volunteers that dedicate part of our "free time" to promote and enhance the professions of engineering and geoscience at the local level, by engaging APEGA members and the public. Activities we are planning include:

  • Outreach events such as Science Nights and Science Olympics
  • Professional development
  • Volunteer appreciation events

Our mission is to develop and implement the APEGA Yellowhead Branch business plan which reflects the aspirations of our local members. All of our work is accomplished in a very friendly and collaborative atmosphere. Come and volunteer with us, and develop your social and professional network!

If you would like to know more about our Branch, or are interested in volunteering, please contact us.
