2022 APEGA Annual Report


“My recurring theme in life is: How can I contribute to the quality of life for as many people as possible in a sustainable way?”

– Col. Chris Hadfield , professional engineer and APEGA Nexus keynote speaker


Our second virtual APEGA Nexus conference in June brought together new and seasoned professional engineers and geoscientists for two days of expert-led sessions on industry innovation, technical competence, and regulation in Alberta. Participation nearly doubled, with more than 1,300 live and on-demand attendees signing in. Three exciting and motivating keynote speakers were among the conference highlights. •Astronaut and professional engineer Col. Chris Hadfield provided inspiration and guidance on managing through complexity and change. •Teacher, researcher, and science outreach educator Dr. Maydianne CB Andrade explored the effects of unconscious bias in the workplace. •Former Alberta Energy minister Murray Smith offered insight into future oil and gas development and worldwide opportunities for visionary professionals.

“Excellent conference—the range of topics was phenomenal, with many very interesting, highly motivating speakers. I also appreciate the virtual format,

as it keeps costs down and makes it easier to attend.”
