More than 700 BC engineering and geoscience professionals, students, and industry stakeholders attended the Engineers and Geoscientists BC annual conference and AGM in Whistler, BC, held October 19-21.
Delegates attended professional development sessions in 11 different streams over two days. Session speakers shared advances in practice and technology, as well as insights and best practices in their respective engineering or geoscience disciplines.
A number of association meetings and networking events were held over the course of the three days, including meetings of branch and divisions volunteers, and student representatives. Keynotes at the conference included retired Fire Chief Darby Allen, Palaeontologist Lisa Buckley, Royal Canadian Geographical Society Explorer-in-Residence Jill Heinerth, and CEO of Technical Safety BC, Catherine Roome, P.Eng.
