Annual Report 2019


We appreciate the continued trust the public and the Government of Alberta have placed in us, and we know we must always remain deserving of that trust. Because when you build trust, you can build anything. Our efforts in 2019 focused on providing more value to the public and to our members. Over the past year, we made significant strides forward with: • updated practice standards • expanded practice reviews with permit-holding companies • increased continuing professional development assessments with licensed professionals • integrated competency-based assessments for engineering applicants These projects and others ensured rigorous oversight of the engineering and geoscience professions. None of this would have been possible without the support of our members— especially those who gave their time as APEGA volunteers. I am grateful for the dedication of those who served on Council, those who mentored young

people in our outreach programs, and those who sustained APEGA branches across the province. I am also proud of our staff, who enthusiastically embraced opportunities to improve communication and collaboration with members and who increased operational efficiencies. We set the bar high, and our staff delivered. From the start, APEGA and its membership have been committed to regulatory excellence, to adapting, to learning, and to building strength through diversity. With our centennial in 2o2o, there will be no better time for us to connect with Albertans, to share our rich history, and to build a better understanding of the engineering and geoscience professions. I am excited to celebrate our past with Albertans as we forge a stronger future together. Jay Nagendran, P.Eng., FCAE, ICD.D, FEC, FGC (Hon.) Registrar & Chief Executive Officer
