Message from the Chairs of the 70th
As we start to wind down 2019 and move towards 2020, Kathy and I have taken some time to reflect on the year and all the great work that has been done. CEEA had a great lineup of events in 2019, including; the Energy Business Forum in February that brought together the future leaders in our industry with Indigenous groups and other key stakeholders, the Charity Ball that helped raise funds in support of local children’s charities, and the Executive Business Conference in Banff that highlighted the important role we have in doing our part to cause the change we want.
Moving forward, Kathy and I look forward to continuing the momentum and are honored to be the Chairs of the 70th Canadian Energy Executive Association.
We are working hard to develop a series of events in 2020 that will align with CEEA’s three key focus areas:
- Business networks and relationship building
- Advocacy of the Canadian Energy Industry
- Supporting Children’s Charities
Please mark your calendars for some of the following key events:
- Energy Business Forum Mid-Year Update on March 5, 2020 at the Petroleum Club in Calgary
- Charity Ball on March 14, 2020 at the Westin Hotel in Calgary
- Energy Business Forum and Golf Tournament in Banff from Wednesday, August 19 to Saturday, August 22, 2020
As we think about our industry’s future we know that CEEA has an important role in advocating for the energy sector, through educating and providing a voice for our industry. The ongoing pressure faced by the energy industry continues to have significant effects on our economy and you only have to scan social media or listen to the news to know that there continues to be many debates and political discourse around the overall benefits and costs of the development and use of hydrocarbons in the modern world.
We can make a difference. We are resilient and working together we can find solutions and continue to move ever higher.
We are proud to be a part of this organization and look forward to our role this year working on behalf of CEEA and all of you.
John Cooper & Kathy Bowden
