Inaugural CEPA Foundation Meeting October 21 and 22 2013



On October 21 and 22, 2013, PLCAC participated in the inaugural CEPA (Canadian Energy Pipeline Association) Foundation meeting in Calgary, Alberta. In attendance were senior management representatives from the pipeline industry from approximately eighty-four companies. Various companies included engineering firms, consultants, contractors, manufacturers, pipeline operators, pipeline maintenance firms, legal, land and environmental service companies. 

The new CEPA Foundation, an entity separate from CEPA, also inducted its first Board of Directors at these meetings. Their role will be focused on the direction and priorities of the Foundation as it moves forward with its mandate. “CEPA members, who are pipeline operators in Canada are also part of this initiative; however, what makes the CEPA Foundation special is that it encompasses members from all sectors of the pipeline industry to work together as industry partners. It provides a forum to exchange ideas and discuss issues of mutual concern,” said Kim McCaig, Executive Director of the newly formed CEPA Foundation.

“I am encouraged by the level of engagement at our recent meetings in Calgary, with over fifty issues raised in the areas of outreach and education, people and skills training, research, and operational excellence. The group is looking forward to addressing each issue at future meetings,” said McCaig.
