About Emerging Professionals Summit
The Emerging Professionals Summit 2022 was held on Saturday, September 17. The virtual summit was an engaging day of interactive learning, informative discussions, and networking opportunities for members-in-training and post-secondary students. The event was held virtually using a partner platform featuring the latest engagement features that make it nearly as easy to connect with speakers and other attendees as in-person events.
This year's summit built 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 help you understand your professional responsibilities, gain workplace skills, and take your career to the next level.
The day wrapped up with a networking reception—an evening to build your network and demonstrate your own personal brand.
