YPE Calgary Update: August 2009 

YPE Calgary has enjoyed a fabulous summer of firsts. We held our first speaker luncheon as well as our first community involvement event. Both events exceeded expectations! Mike Graham provided an excellent talk at Rush Restraunt on July 28th, and volunteers had a blast volunteering with the kids for Camp Bonaventure on August 6th at Sandy Beach.

Now that everyone's back from vacation and ready to get back into work mode (well, almost!) we have a Happy Hour planned for Thursday, September 10th at Seven Restolounge at 5:00pm. The folks at Seven are excited to see the YPE membership come through their doors and have graciously offered us complimentary beverages and tapas. With the changes to the global economy and the impact on our industry, networking is becoming more and more important. I'd encourage you to attend on the 10th to expand your professional network and enjoy the company of your peers.

We're expecting a huge turnout for this event, so please register soon - you can find the happy hour on the calendar at www.ypenergy.org or simply click the yellow "register" link below.

More details on our past events and community involvement are covered in the articles below.

Warm regards,

Sarah Phillips
Director, YPE Calgary

YPE Calgary Speaker Luncheon July 28th, 2009

Mike Graham is the Executive Vice President & President of the Canadian Region at EnCana. He met with 25 YPE members & directors for a speaker luncheon held at Rush Restaurant. Mike's talk touched on the current economic climate, the future of the energy industry, EnCana's history and strategies, and some career tips for developing professionals. The staff at Rush provided excellent food and service (as always!). Those that were able to attend were treated to a great talk in an intimate setting. Watch out for future speaker luncheons through YPE Calgary. This one was a hit and sold out fast!

Drop Zone September 10th, 2009
YPE members Sachli Zare, Anna Doyle, Kea Afolayan, Melanie Quon, Aisling Doyle, and Beth Wiarda, all from Suncor, are casting their fears aside to repel down the SunLife Tower on September 10th, 2009 for the annual Easter Seals "Drop Zone" fundraiser. They will be repelling down a cool 28 stories (375 feet!). These brave souls have dubbed themselves the "Power Rangers" and have set a lofty goal of raising $9000 as a team. To support them, visit http://my.e2rm.com/personalPage.aspx?SID=2289961 to make a secure donation.

The Easter Seals is dedicated to helping children, youth and adults with physical disabilities and special needs achieve their potential in independence. Kudos to the "Power Rangers" for putting their efforts behind this worthy cause. If you're donating, keep in mind that Easter Seals may benefit from your company's matching gifts programs!
