Benefits of CGEF Membership
The full networking benefits of membership have been constrained in the last 2-3 years due to the pandemic but we see CGEF being able to return to a full program in 2023 that will also include Webinars and special meetings with government officials from countries looking to attract investors.
The current network luncheon schedule is anticipated as follows for the first half of 2023:
We anticipate an additional 3 lunches in the second half of the year, typically September, November and December.
All networking lunches will be held at the Calgary Petroleum Club with a format that promotes opportunities for peer to peer networking, member and sponsor company presentations and interactions with government officials from other companies as well as our Alberta and Canadian Trade Representatives.
We are expecting to hold our annual conference on the Monday, June 12th immediately prior to the Global Energy Show scheduled for June 13th -15th, 2023 in Calgary which will highlight some of the success stories of Canadian companies working abroad as well as other areas of interest to our members such as finance, government relations, "New Energy" businesses, ESG and clean-tech.
CGEF's Board and various Committees are diligently working to continue providing services and support to our members and sponsors through:
- Web-hosted seminars, some of which may be focused on best practices that member companies have employed to “transition to net zero”; how to now reap the benefits of higher commodity prices and the introduction/presentation of various countries seeking to attract Canadian energy companies investment in their country's respective energy industry.
- Representation at international conferences
- Subsidized opportunities for member company representatives to attend international conferences
As CGEF is planning to have a full slate of activities for 2023, we have attached an invoice for this year's membership. Membership fees support attendance at CGEF lunches and conferences. As a member, your company gets free admission to both along with other benefits outlined below. It would be greatly appreciated if you could submit payment of the fees within the next 30 days which will assist your Board of Directors and Advisors to plan CGEF finances for this year.
Nominations for Directors and Advisors for CGEF's Board of Directors:
CGEF is actively looking for member companies to nominate candidates for Directors and Advisors to the Board. It is a great way to get members of your staff exposed to a wider networking circle whilst gaining valuable Board experience. If you have candidates, please forward their names and CV's to firstname.lastname@example.org and/or email@example.com. We are interested in people of all ages and backgrounds with the main criteria being an interest in the principles of CGEF and an enthusiastic interest in contributing their skills and energy where needed.
