Welcome to the Canadian Energy Executive Association
Message from the Chairs of the 69th
We are honored to be the Chairs of the 69th Canadian Energy Executive Association (CEEA) and Oilmen’s Golf Tournament. With the help of a talented board of governors comprised of 31 leaders across all aspects of the industry, we are pleased to continue to bring you much value in 2019.
CEEA (Formerly the Oilmen’s) has three key focuses: 1) Business networks and relationship building (for industry leaders and partners), 2) Advocacy for the Canadian Energy Industry (which continues to face endless challenges but remains resilient), and 3) Supporting children’s charities, currently through our partnership with the Shaw Charity Classic.
Every year a new logo is chosen to represent the theme for the annual CEEA events. This year’s theme is Peace Love Energy, which is tailored to the three key focuses above.
Business networks and relationship building:
Our organization is steeped in history and has built a successful track record of creating life-long personal and business relationships. From the countless business deals to support for personal initiatives within our communities, the networking and relationship building that has been a part of the organization is a key reason to attend CEEA’s events.
CEEA represents the entire oil and gas industry supply chain and executives realize they need to be at our events to learn about issues that affect everyone and to be a part of the solution for change. Through our business conferences we are one of the only organizations that effectively bridges the relationships between industry, indigenous groups and government.
Advocacy of the Canadian Energy Industry:
The organization plays an important role in Advocacy for the Energy Industry. We are proud of our industry and what we have accomplished and our commitment is to work together to provide a better future for our children.
Our organization’s ability to successfully advocate for our industry largely depends on the wide network of business leaders and partners who attend our events. Collectively, we support one another as we battle mis-information and regulations that impact our progress and ability to thrive.
Supporting Children’s Charities:
Finally, of great importance to us is CEEA’s strong focus on giving back to the community through our generous fundraising for children’s charities. Currently, we have a partnership with the Shaw Charity Classic where, in our first two years, we have raised over $225,000 for Children’s Charites. In 2019 we hope to significantly add to this total through the very generous support of those in our organization, and to the businesses within our network whom are also always at the forefront of giving back to the community.
We have tailored our Peace Love Energy theme around these three focuses and are excited to share it with you more through our video:
You should attend our events if you want to build relationships with key leaders within the Energy Industry, want to be part of solutions to help our industry thrive during these uncertain and difficult times, and if you want to support Children’s charities.
We are very excited to be the Chairs of the 69th and we are sure to create events that you will not want to miss! Thank you for your continued support of our organization and we look forward to seeing you in 2019.
