Emerging Professionals Summit

A Virtual Experience | September 25, 2021

How do you equip yourself with the right skills and knowledge to start your career off strong?
What are the skills you need as an emerging professional?

The Emerging Professionals Summit 2021, proudly presented by CNRL, will be held virtually in September. The Summit is an engaging day of interactive learning, informative discussions, and networking opportunities for members-in-training and post-secondary students. The event will be held virtually using a partner platform featuring the latest engagement features that will make it nearly as easy to connect with speakers and other attendees as in-person events.

This year's summit will build upon last year's event and continue advancing the skills and knowledge of young engineering and geoscience professionals across Canada. 

Our speakers include industry leaders and APEGA representatives who will help you understand your professional responsibilities, gain workplace skills, and take your career to the next level.

The summit will wrap up with a networking reception­­—an evening to build your network and demonstrate your own personal brand.
