APEGA Council Election 2021

Each year, an APEGA Council election is held. Voting is conducted online in the Member Self-Service Centre (MSSC) over 30 days in early spring so that all members have an equal opportunity to take part and have their voices heard.

Voting in the Election

You can vote in the APEGA Election if you are a member with an eligible membership type at the time of the election (see eligibility below).

Virtual Meeting Bylaw Vote

This year, the APEGA Council election ballot will include a second question. You will be asked to vote to approve an amendment to the APEGA bylaws that will authorize meetings of the Association (such as the annual general meeting) to be held in person, electronically, or as a combination of both.

What Council Can and Cannot Do

As Alberta's engineering and geoscience regulatory body, APEGA exists to protect the public. Through our self-regulatory structure, APEGA Council has been entrusted by the Government of Alberta to ensure our members fulfill that mandate—this added responsibility is what distinguishes APEGA Council from a typical board of directors.
