Over three days in October, more than 1,000 engineering and geoscience professionals, students, and industry stakeholders gathered at the Vancouver Convention Centre for Engineers and Geoscientists BC's Annual Conference. Delegates networked with colleagues, learned about the latest engineering and geoscience products and technologies through 41 exhibitors, and expanded their knowledge through 11 professional development streams. The event concluded with the association’s Annual General Meeting on October 20.
Conference keynote speakers included medical education research scientist Dr. Glenn Regehr, Harvard-trained author, researcher, and media expert Dr. Shimi Kang, and Canadian football Hall-of-Fame inductee Michael “Pinball” Clemons. The conference also featured the 2018 President’s Awards Gala, where eight members were honoured for their excellence in professional, technical, and community service.
Many thanks to all of our exceptional stream coordinators, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, and conference delegates for your contributions and support in making the conference and annual meeting a success.
The association’s 2019 annual conference and AGM will be hosted in Kelowna, BC, October 17–19, 2019. Mark your calendars!
