November YPAC Commitee Meeting Update

Fellow Young Pipeliners,

Yesterday the YPAC executive committee met to settle some very important action items for the upcoming 2014/15 election term.  The President, Vice President, and VP Finance positions have been elected by the Advisory Board (AB).  For those of you who don’ t know, the advisory board is made up of senior members currently active in industry, whether it be with the NEB, an owner/ operator company, a pipeline services company, or a consulting firm.  Once the final committee has been set, a formal annoucement will be made in January 2014 on who the committee members will be for the 2014-2015 2 year term.

There are  many positions open to get involved with YPAC here in Calgary.  If you are interested in dealing with sponsorships, membership, events coordination, communications, website coordination, university laison, or becoming the lead contact for YPAC in Edmonton, please email YPAC @ and express your intention to run for position within YPAC.  The Executive Committee will contact you by December 6, 2013 to formally indicate where you will fit in the YPAC Committee.
