Advocacy Task Force - Requesting Member Input
The Advocacy Task Force (ATF) is a group currently developing a proposed APEGM Advocacy Framework for considering issues brought to APEGM that have the potential to place the public interest at risk. This activity is in response to the Association's legislated mandate to advocate where the public interest is at risk.
The ATF has presented a draft framework at APEGM's Ingenium Conference in a workshop and at a briefing during the business meeting portion of the AGM, in a published article in the Keystone Professional 2012 winter edition, and at two member consultation forums hosted at APEGM in February of 2013. A draft framework, Bylaw and Terms of Reference package is currently under review by Legislation Committee and ATF's legal counsel, prior to presenting this package to APEGM Council for approval and a subsequent vote by membership.
If you were unable to join any of the ATF information and consultation sessions, the most recent presentation to members can be reviewed here. A link to the full Keystone Professional ATF article is here.
Comments can be provided to the ATF directly by emailing email@example.com

Prize winners will be announced in an upcoming APEGM News Notice e-mailing and in the Keystone Professional.
Employer Salary Survey
In an effort to complement the annual APEGM Membership Salary Survey, the association has commissioned a survey of salaries and benefits offered by employers to Manitoba engineers and geoscientists. See the 2012 Employer Survey for results!
Provincial Engineering And Geoscience Week!
Provincial Engineering And Geoscience Week (PEGW) took place March 4 – 10, 2013. Events included the Spaghetti Bridge building competition (pictures) for students in grades 1 - 12. A pasta donation was made to Winnipeg Harvest equal to the cumulative weight supported by all entries in the Winnipeg Spaghetti Bridge Competition. This year we reached 12,305 lbs. (5,596 kg)!
There was a special supplement section in the Saturday, March 2, 2013 issue of the Winnipeg Free Press as part of Provincial engineering and geoscience week.
Engineering Labour Market Study
Engineers Canada released Engineering Labour Market in Canada: Projections to 2020 that shows Canada is facing a short supply of engineers with more than 10 years of specialized experience.
Engineering Is For Girls
The Faculty of Engineering at the University of Manitoba recently held an outreach event that hosted 110 girls from high schools throughout the province. After a day of presentations and activities, 125 female alumni participated in a special Celebration of Women in Engineering event, highlighting achievements and challenges the faculty faces with regard to attracting women to engineering. Following dinner, the new President of the APEGM, Dawn Nedohin-Macek, gave a keynote presentation. There is a CBC interview with President Nedohin-Macek regarding Women in Engineering on the CBC website.
APEGM Geoscience Gallery
A new geoscience gallery display has been unveiled at Brandon University. The new fixture is a part of the Department of Geology, and contains many fantastic mineral specimens and a real dinosaur! The dinosaur is a Dromaeosaurus Albertensis, a raptorial predator, and has been named “Jerome the Dromaeosaurus” after a competition of more than 100 entries from kindergarten to Grade 6 students. This display was funded by the APEGM Foundation.
Recent by-law changes have empowered APEGM Members to obtain an authorized electronic seal, or digital signature, that may be used to authenticate their digital files. APEGM has partnered with Notarius to provide digital signature kits and authentication for its members. This technology has the potential to increase productivity and profitability, while meeting the high security and integrity concerns associated with the transmission of electronic documents.
There will be a promotion over the next few months enabling firms to implement pilot projects and see the benefits for themselves. To find out more about this promotion, contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 1-888-588-0011.
Continuing Professional Development - Online Now!
There is growing public expectation that professionals prove their competency. Look at the recent media stories citing members disciplined by the College of Physicians & Surgeons and The Law Society. In both examples, the strong public statement was “What is the regulator doing about this?” Consequently, in order to have a ready response for the public, APEGM is asking its members to report their CPD activities. All professionals must be able to show the public of Manitoba that they are actively participating in continuing professional development.
All members are encouraged to login to their APEGM Online profiles and try the new CPD reporting utility. It is easy and FUN. It takes about 20 minutes to input existing details to your personal profile; after which, it takes only a few minutes per month to keep up-to-date. Try it today!
