Candidates Announced for 2021 APEGA Council

The nomination process for our 2021 election is complete and candidates are preparing their messages. That means it’s time for you to start thinking about who to vote for in the upcoming APEGA Council election!

Two candidates seek the president-elect position for the 2021-2022 term and 16 others hope to serve three-year terms on Council. Four Council seats will be filled, with a fifth, one-year vacancy due to the election of the vice-president.

Last year, Brian Pearse, P.Eng. was voted in as president-elect, so he automatically advances to the presidency in 2021-2022.

You can vote for up to four candidates for Council and one for incoming president.
