2022 APEGA Annual Report

WHAT SUCCESS LOOKS LIKE: Our members are recognized for their professional expertise and contributions to society. HAMMERS, HANDSAWS, AND HIGH-FIVES

APEGA volunteers #DoLocalGood at United Way Engineering Challenge

This was Amit’s second year volunteering for the Day of Caring. Joining him from APEGA were Amy Elvin, Mathew Fasullo, Stephanie James, and Kristine Lavoie. The day involved lots of hard work, hammers, handsaws, and high-fives as the volunteers enthusiastically undertook their assigned tasks. “It’s important to take the time to volunteer and demonstrate APEGA’s commitment to our community and to society,” says Amit. “For the camp to hire contractors would cost thousands of dollars. By giving our time and energy, volunteers are able to do some much-needed improvements that otherwise might not have been done.” Located on the shores of Lake Wabamun, about 80 kilometres west of Edmonton, Camp Yowochas provides year-round team building, leadership development, and environmental education for thousands of children, youth, and adults.

Their smiles were big, and their hearts even bigger.

A team of five APEGA employees joined 70 other volunteers from Edmonton’s engineering community on September 16 to help transform the YWCA’s Camp Yowochas at the16th annual United Way Engineering Challenge – Alberta Capital Region Day of Caring. The challenge is a way for engineering companies, in partnership with the United Way, to make an impact by completing a sustainable community building project for United Way agencies like the YWCA. A total of 15 engineering firms and APEGA took part. “It was a great experience working together with my APEGA teammates, and other engineering professionals, to get involved and give back,” explains Amit Banerjee, P.Eng., APEGA director, registration operations.
