2018 Synergy Alberta Conference


Our theme this year - ‘Navigating a New Normal' was timely, engaging and well received. We had a great line-up of speakers and received a lot of positive feedback on the conference program which included:

  • Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers
  • Canadian Society for Unconventional Resources
  • Alberta Energy Regulator
  • National Energy Board
  • Surface Rights Board
  • Farmer's Advocate Office
  • Orphan Well Association
  • Olds College
  • Citizens On Patrol
  • Rural Crime Watch
  • Royal Canadian Mounted Police
  • Alberta Emergency Management Agency
  • Baytex Energy Ltd.
  • Member Groups- Lakeland Industry and Communication Association; Wapiti Area Synergy Partnership
  • Youth member Justine Norheim
  • Communication and Engagement specialists:
    • David Savage
    • Denise Chartrand
    • Anne Harding
    • Amber Bennett

We heard about the value of participation from the people who live it on a daily basis and who have experienced benefits - personally, corporately and from a governmental perspective - as a result of being involved in synergy groups. With informational updates on current programs affecting the province, inspiring presentations from youth and training workshops on communication, indigenous engagement, and climate conversation, there was something for everyone.

Wrapping up the conference, the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers brought perspective to the current social and political environment that Canada's oil & gas industry is working in and the need to improve our country's ability to access markets while continuing to meet the high safety and environmental standards we have in Canada.

Finally, a big thank you again to everyone who helped to make the 2018 Synergy Conference a success- our funders, sponsors, speakers, MC, facilitators, volunteers and of course all of our conference delegates who share, network, listen, learn and provide comment and perspective. It is the active participation of those attending that truly demonstrates the value in having our annual conference. Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you next year!
