Connect via Professional Interests with Divisions

Posted on 09 November 2017
Engineers and Geoscientists BC has five special interest divisions that provide a unique opportunity for members to connect and discuss a variety of engineering and geoscience issues which include energy efficiency and renewable energy, the resource sector, environmental matters, municipal engineering or women in the professions. 

The divisions allow members with common technical or other interests to share and disseminate information, review and comment on relevant policy, and build a network among like-minded professionals. Joining a division puts you in contact with practitioners with similar experiences and knowledge, and promotes discussion amongst members.

“Divisions are an inexpensive and practical way to stay current with both technology and external factors affecting a specific practice area,” says Cal Merry, P.Eng. Former Chair of the Municipal Engineers Division. 

Divisions provide tours, networking events, professional development seminars and newsletters for their members. They also provide feedback on practice guidelines, regulations, and policies developed by Engineers and Geoscientists BC, Engineers Canada, and government, and are consulted on other professional practice-related matters.

You can join an Engineers and Geoscientists BC division during the 2018 membership renewal process, or online at any time by signing into your account on our website. Division membership is open to any association member upon payment of a nominal annual fee.
