Information session on the proposed updates to the Authentication Practice Standard.

Register by September 25, 2018, at 8:30 a.m.

Proposed Updates to the Authentication Standard

Understanding and properly implementing authentication, particularly in the digital space, is one of the most talked-about challenges licensed professionals face in their practice. The Authentication Standard Subject Matter Panel, consisting of subject matter experts and a select group of permit holders, has updated APEGA's Authenticating Professional Documents (now titled Authenticating Professional Work Products) practice standard to improve definitions and add clarity to this important professional responsibility.

Some changes to the practice standard include:

  • defining professional work products to enable licensed professionals to better determine what should be authenticated
  • defining a Responsible Member's validation of professional work products
  • standardizing authentication and validation formats to enable licensed professionals, permit holder, and the public to easily identify the authenticator and the validator, as well as the dates of authentication and validation
  • discussing the uses of digital technology to authenticate professional work products
  • setting the requirements for the authentication of professional work products imported into or exported from Alberta
  • providing considerations for the retention and storage of authenticated professional work products

Advanced Ethical Decision Making

8:30 am - 4:30 pm

APEGA professionals occupy a very important position in relation to public trust. There is an assumption of integrity and the application of the highest ethical principles and standards in the protection of both the public and the profession itself. This is not a simple or easy task. It requires sensitivity to ethical issues and the ability to use ethical judgment. In “Advanced Ethical Decision-making” you will consider each one of these four requirements and apply your thinking to real dilemmas that professionals like you face.

APEGA professionals occupy a very important position in relation to public trust. There is an assumption of integrity and the application of the highest ethical principles and standards in the protection of both the public and the profession itself. This is not a simple or easy task. It requires sensitivity to ethical issues and the ability to use ethical judgment. It also requires the motivation to do the right thing. Most difficult of all is the commitment to take action that requires courage, persistence, overcoming obstacles, influencing skills and personal confidence. In "Advanced Ethical Decision-making" you will consider each one of these four requirements and apply your thinking to real dilemmas that professionals like you face.

When you participate in this session, you will :

  • Identify ethical dilemmas facing APEGA professionals and discuss the personal and organizational obstacles associated with taking ethical action.
  • Review the four-step model of ethical action developed by James Rest and the challenges inherent in each step:
    • Moral Sensitivity
    • Moral Judgment
    • Moral Motivation
    • Moral Character (action)
  • Apply a comprehensive model for ethical decision- making to ethical dilemmas that include action planning and influence.
  • Develop a plan to address both personal and organizational challenges associated with ethical decision-making and action-taking.

Edmonton Branch Luncheon: Yellowhead Trail Freeway Conversion Program

11:30 am - 1:00 pm

The APEGA Edmonton Branch is excited to welcome Mike Bindas, P.Eng. from the City of Edmonton to discuss the Yellowhead Trail as an important regional corridor and part of the Trans Canada Yellowhead Highway.

Register by September 26, 2018

The Yellowhead Trail is an important regional corridor and part of the Trans Canada Yellowhead Highway. It is also recognized as the most heavily used truck route in the Goods Movement Strategy, a Dangerous Goods Route, and a 24-hour Truck Route in Edmonton.

In 2011, the Yellowhead Trail Strategic Plan outlined a vision for Yellowhead as a future freeway, improving the operational capacity, level of service and safety along the corridor. On December 16, 2016, the Government of Canada and the Government of Alberta joined the City of Edmonton to announce joint funding for the Yellowhead Trail Freeway Conversion Program (a long-term project intended to eliminate all at-grade crossings and direct access onto Yellowhead Trail by the end of 2026/27). 

The Program is broken into manageable sections to ensure planning, design and construction can be delivered efficiently while effectively mitigating impacts. Upon completion, the resulting freeway will have 6 core lanes, with additional lanes in congested areas. The freeway will target an operating speed of 80 km/hr and will be free-flowing. In some locations, off-corridor improvements will be completed to ensure an improved rerouting of traffic from previous direct connections to Yellowhead Trail.  

About the Presenter

Mike Bindas, P.Eng., joined the newly created Yellowhead Trail Portfolio team in early 2018, and soon after that took on the role of Supervisor of Delivery to help lead the program through design and construction.

Mike completed his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering at the University of Alberta in 2004. In 2005, Mike joined the City of Edmonton in their Transportation design group. While working with that team, Mike was part of many successful design projects including the Dawson Bridge, Whitemud Drive / 17 Street underpass, Walterdale bridge, and the NE Anthony Henday Drive connectors program. In 2014 Mike transitioned to a new role as a construction project manager in Building Great Neighbourhoods, where he managed a number of multi-million dollar construction contracts.

Proposed Updates to the Authentication Standard

Understanding and properly implementing authentication, particularly in the digital space, is one of the most talked-about challenges licensed professionals face in their practice. The Authentication Standard Subject Matter Panel, consisting of subject matter experts and a select group of permit holders, has updated APEGA's Authenticating Professional Documents (now titled Authenticating Professional Work Products) practice standard to improve definitions and add clarity to this important professional responsibility.

Some changes to the practice standard include:

  • defining professional work products to enable licensed professionals to better determine what should be authenticated
  • defining a Responsible Member's validation of professional work products
  • standardizing authentication and validation formats to enable licensed professionals, permit holder, and the public to easily identify the authenticator and the validator, as well as the dates of authentication and validation
  • discussing the uses of digital technology to authenticate professional work products
  • setting the requirements for the authentication of professional work products imported into or exported from Alberta
  • providing considerations for the retention and storage of authenticated professional work products

Assertiveness: A Powerful Communication Skill For Career Success

8:30 am - 4:30 pm

In today's fast-paced, complex and often uncertain work world, the ability to communicate really well is critical to career success. Asserting yourself is part attitude, part skill acquisition. Assertiveness is a learned communication technique that will consistently put you in control of the outcome.

Register by October 19, 2018

In today's fast-paced, complex and often uncertain work world, the ability to communicate really well is critical to career success. Asserting yourself is part attitude, part skill acquisition. Assertiveness is a learned communication technique that will consistently put you in control of the outcome.

Assertiveness helps individuals break unproductive communication patterns, minimize defensiveness, solve problems and build trust in relationships. Learning how to express one's opinion, provide feedback to others and respond to criticism are all good reasons for becoming an assertive communicator.

In this experiential workshop, participants will understand the advantages of being assertive, reasons people are not assertive, know that an assertive communicator is never aggressive, and how passive behavior can lead to ineffectiveness and high dissatisfaction.

Upon completion of this seminar, you will be able to:

  • Understand reasons people are not assertive and the advantages of being assertive.
  • Compare and recognize passive, aggressive and assertive communication techniques.
  • Examine current personal assertiveness skill level.
  • Practice an assertive formula.

Proposed Updates to the Authentication Standard

Understanding and properly implementing authentication, particularly in the digital space, is one of the most talked-about challenges licensed professionals face in their practice. The Authentication Standard Subject Matter Panel, consisting of subject matter experts and a select group of permit holders, has updated APEGA's Authenticating Professional Documents (now titled Authenticating Professional Work Products) practice standard to improve definitions and add clarity to this important professional responsibility.

Some changes to the practice standard include:

  • defining professional work products to enable licensed professionals to better determine what should be authenticated
  • defining a Responsible Member's validation of professional work products
  • standardizing authentication and validation formats to enable licensed professionals, permit holder, and the public to easily identify the authenticator and the validator, as well as the dates of authentication and validation
  • discussing the uses of digital technology to authenticate professional work products
  • setting the requirements for the authentication of professional work products imported into or exported from Alberta
  • providing considerations for the retention and storage of authenticated professional work products

Advanced Ethical Decision Making

8:30 am - 4:30 pm

APEGA professionals occupy a very important position in relation to public trust. There is an assumption of integrity and the application of the highest ethical principles and standards in the protection of both the public and the profession itself. This is not a simple or easy task. It requires sensitivity to ethical issues and the ability to use ethical judgment. In “Advanced Ethical Decision-making” you will consider each one of these four requirements and apply your thinking to real dilemmas that professionals like you face.

APEGA professionals occupy a very important position in relation to public trust. There is an assumption of integrity and the application of the highest ethical principles and standards in the protection of both the public and the profession itself. This is not a simple or easy task. It requires sensitivity to ethical issues and the ability to use ethical judgment. It also requires the motivation to do the right thing. Most difficult of all is the commitment to take action that requires courage, persistence, overcoming obstacles, influencing skills and personal confidence. In "Advanced Ethical Decision-making" you will consider each one of these four requirements and apply your thinking to real dilemmas that professionals like you face.

When you participate in this session, you will:

  • Identify ethical dilemmas facing APEGA professionals and discuss the personal and organizational obstacles associated with taking ethical action.
  • Review the four-step model of ethical action developed by James Rest and the challenges inherent in each step:
    • Moral Sensitivity
    • Moral Judgment
    • Moral Motivation
    • Moral Character (action)
  • Apply a comprehensive model for ethical decision- making to ethical dilemmas that include action planning and influence.
  • Develop a plan to address both personal and organizational challenges associated with ethical decision-making and action-taking.

Climbing Mount Everest is considered one of mankind's greatest feats of human endurance. The two-month expedition to the top of the world's highest peak is a project filled with unparalleled physical and mental challenges through some of the most extreme conditions imaginable. Alan Mallory took on the challenge and set a world record when he, along with three members of his immediate family, reached the summit of Everest.  From teetering across ladders spanning seemingly bottomless crevasses and fighting the many altitude-related sicknesses to climbing through a blizzard in the dead of night, every segment of the climb was filled with intense, extraordinary challenges.

Alan's dynamic session focuses on developing project managers and strengthening project teams by reinforcing the PD skills and project management expertise that are essential for success in any project. It highlights the processes, tools and project stages that are involved in planning and executing difficult projects by using the challenge of Everest as an example of such a project.

The underlying message is about how we, as project managers, need to reach new heights in the way we think and the actions we take to advance our profession and achieve breakthrough performance.

When you participate in this session, you will learn how to:

  • Empower team members to make critical decisions
  • Use hybrid methods of incorporating agile project management
  • Make prompt project decisions and take appropriate action
  • Effective collaboration and team interaction
  • Adapt to the environment and revised customer requirements
  • Continually identify and evaluate risks

In today's fast-paced, complex and often uncertain work world, the ability to communicate really well is critical to career success. Asserting yourself is part attitude, part skill acquisition. Assertiveness is a learned communication technique that will consistently put you in control of the outcome.

Assertiveness helps individuals break unproductive communication patterns, minimize defensiveness, solve problems and build trust in relationships. Learning how to express one's opinion, provide feedback to others and respond to criticism are all good reasons for becoming an assertive communicator.

In this experiential workshop, participants will understand the advantages of being assertive, reasons people are not assertive, know that an assertive communicator is never aggressive, and how passive behavior can lead to ineffectiveness and high dissatisfaction.

Upon completion of this seminar, you will be able to:

  • Understand reasons people are not assertive and the advantages of being assertive.
  • Compare and recognize passive, aggressive and assertive communication techniques.
  • Examine current personal assertiveness skill level.
  • Practice an assertive formula.
