2021 APEGA Annual Report

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT Professional development shouldn’t stop just because we can’t meet in person. To help our licensed professionals continue learning and growing during the pandemic, we hosted all our conferences and webinars on virtual platforms in 2021. Through a mix of informative, inspiring, and interactive sessions, we helped build better careers and meet mandatory continuing education requirements. Virtual delivery greatly increased member engagement and our ability to reach more people, with participants logging in from urban and rural Alberta, across Canada, and globally.

Fun fact:

Attendees signed in for the APEGA Nexus Conference from as far away as Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates in the Middle East, and Texas, California, Mississippi, and Georgia in the United States.

We launched our annual professional development conference under a new banner: the APEGA Nexus Conference. More than 700 online attendees joined us for two days of expert-led sessions on innovation, diversity, technical competence, and regulation in Alberta. The event included a virtual trade show, poster showcase, and themed networking rooms. In comparison, our in-person conference in 2019 had 222 attendees.
