Merry Christmas to everyone. As the new Edmonton Branch President I would like to share a short message with you. 2020 has been a trying year, and as most of you, I’m looking forward to 2021 and an end to this pandemic.

October Branch Meeting – Zoom Online

posted online October 18, 2020

Location: Zoom Online

Special Guest: Mr. Henry Hau, PE

Date: Thursday, October 29, 2020
Time: 6:30 PM

Well things are evolving at the IPE, and we are pleased to announce we will be starting up with meetings again. Considering we are registered with the Province of Alberta under the Societies Act; social distancing has had a real impact on our organization. I am optimistic things will improve (eventually) but for now we will adapt as we are able, and we are pleased to announce we have some content to share with you this Fall.

Please join us online with Zoom on Thursday, October 29, 2020 at 6:30pm. Our special guest will be Mr. Henry Hau, PE. Henry is one of our most senior IPE members in Alberta and sits on the board with the Pressure Equipment Sub Council. In his presentation Henry will talk in detail about what the PESC does, how it works and why it is important for us to have a pressure equipment safety committee.

Please RSVP if you are interested in attending and I will add your email to the list for meeting invites. I look forward to your response.
