Event Description

Join the Northern Branch at their annual general meeting. During this session, there will be a discussion about this year's achievements and plans for the future. This is a great opportunity to earn 1 CE hour, meet local engineers and geoscientists, and learn about how the Northern Branch promotes the professions at local schools and engages registrants to make a positive impact in our communities.

Following the annual general meeting, Bryn Letham, Ph.D. will be giving a technical talk about reconstructing 15,000 years of geomorphological sea level change on the Northwest Coast of BC. Bryn combines geoscience and archeology to predict where Indigenous coastal communities would likely have been many thousands of years ago (they're not where you might expect!), and then conducts archeological exploration along those ancient coastlines.

Attendance may take place in-person at Coast Mountain College, Prince Rupert Campus in Room #185 or virtually through Microsoft Teams.

Please note that vaccination status will be checked upon arrival of all in-person attendees. Parking is available. Since access to the facility is controlled after hours, an executive Northern Branch volunteer will greet and direct attendees at the door until 6:00 PM. After this time, instructions and a contact number will be left at the door.
