As the Conference Committee’s sights are firmly fixed on February 2022, the Committee, for the first time since March 2020, feels confident that we will be arriving at the destination we set out for. It has been a long path, fraught with uncertainty, ever changing road signs and drastic detours. But as the destination becomes clearer, our team’s excitement grows.
Engaging breakout sessions on topics ranging from Industry Water Usage/Handling, the “New Energy Environment”, ESG, aboriginal affairs and negotiations, will educate and guide delegates. Short, impactful, TED-Talk style, “CAPL Talks” will shed light on novel ideas and approaches while the breakfast and lunch Keynote Speeches will inspire.
The Conference Activities will gather delegates in unique settings; many for the first time professionally in our new world. Mindful of Alberta’s winter climate, our activities will be unique to the 2022, with no (sunny) patios and certainly no golf tournament.
Being conscience of people’s and company’s time and resources, the employee-employer trade off is straightforward. Activities will be largely focused on the weekend, while traditional business hours on Monday and Tuesday will be dedicated to the formal Program. That won’t mean these lanes won’t merge, with Sunday School classes running on Sunday morning and a Gala Style event on Monday night. While the Conference will officially wrap up later on Tuesday afternoon, given the expected inclement conditions on Alberta’s highway’s, we are encouraging individuals to enjoy the company of peers, partners and trusted service providers at one of Edmonton’s fine dining establishments on Tuesday night.
Registration for the 2022 Conference will open early November and early bird pricing will continue until December 1, 2021. As we have a fixed number of delegate seats this year, once the Conference registration fills up – it is sold out. Be sure to register early to ensure you aren’t disappointed!
Looking forward to seeing everyone in Edmonton in just a few short months!
CAPL Conference 2022 Chair
