What's New

2018 Synergy Conference location confirmed...

If you haven’t already marked your calendars for this year’s Synergy Conference, now’s the time! The conference has been set for November 5th & 6th and will be held at the Sheraton Hotel in Red Deer.

The theme for this year’s conference is “Navigating a New Normal”. With changes in technologies, changes in regulatory approaches and changes in the economic and social environment, normal is not what it was just a few short years ago.

We have some great topics in the works for this year’s conference. Orphan wells and bankruptcy, evolving regulatory frameworks, social media and the cyber world are just a few of the subjects we will be exploring. We’ll take a look at what’s driving industry trends, and what’s impacting our communities as a result. And through it all we’ll look at what roles synergy groups can and do play in helping us all navigate this “new normal”.

Scattered through the conference will be the “Ten Talks”... ten minute presentations showcasing and highlighting a variety of synergy related projects, milestones, and opportunities. And of course, we’ll be ensuring that there is plenty of time throughout the conference to network, renew acquaintances, meet new people, and share ideas or stories.

Stay tuned. Our registration site will be opening soon!

2017 Synergy Conference

The 2017 Synergy Conference has come and gone, and we would like to take a moment to thank everyone who contributed to it being such a successful event.

Thank you to our funders and sponsors, whose support helps to keep the event affordable; to our speakers for sharing their passion for synergy and their topics; to our Conference Advisory Committee for all the great input and suggestions.

A big thank you also goes out to the facilitators and the volunteers for keeping everything on schedule and running smoothly, and to everyone who worked so hard behind the scenes with registrations and the multitude of details that go into delivering a successful event. Of course we also want to thank all the delegates that took the time to attend and to actively participate.

Most of all, thank you to all of you who invest your time and resources to further the principles of synergy across our province. It takes courage and effort to push past our old models of doing things and extend ourselves to deal with issues and differences in a synergistic manner, allowing everyone a place at the table. We believe that synergy is making a difference in our communities, our governments, and Alberta’s industries and that with respect for one another’s uniqueness’ we are better able to find our commonalities.

Thanks for celebrating, sharing, and contributing to synergy! We look forward to seeing you all again next year.
