APEGBC OQM Presentation (two-hour presentation)
Organizations employing APEGBC professionals have a significant influence on the practice of the professions. To address this influence APEGBC has developed the Organizational Quality Management (OQM) Program to improve the quality management of professional engineering and geoscience practices at the individual and organizational level. This voluntary program includes certification for organizations.

'Lyn Anglin, Ph.D., P. Geo., APEGBC Councillor and Chief Scientific Officer for Imperial Metals Corporation (one-hour presentation)
Prior to joining Imperial Metals Corporation, Dr. Anglin was President and CEO of Geoscience BC, a highly successful and influential non-profit geoscience research organization created in 2005 with funding of $25 million from the Province of British Columbia. She was appointed in January 2006 as the organization’s inaugural President and CEO and retired in September 2013. 

Under her leadership Geoscience BC produced a wealth of new geoscience data sets and knowledge that generated significant new mineral exploration investment in the Province, led to a number of new mineral discoveries, and contributed to the extension of the mine life of an important copper-molybdenum producer. She also led the development of collaborative research programs with the oil and gas industry, government, First Nations and communities to develop regional datasets on water quantity, and establish a seismic monitoring network, related to natural gas development in the Province.
