Synergy Conference 2017 – Registration is Open!

Registration for the 2017 Synergy Conference is now open! Just click on the Conference Website link below the Designing Our Future banner to start your registration process.

Our conference theme for 2017 is “Designing Our Future – Synergies in Action”. Given the changing landscape we are seeing in Alberta, environmentally, socially, and economically, it seems fitting to focus in on opportunities and examples of collaborative efforts, evolving processes, and the growing opportunities to work together in fitting ourselves and our communities for tomorrow.

The conference will be held on November 6th & 7th at the Executive Royal Hotel in Leduc, Alberta. A block of rooms is being held at a special conference rate until October 21st. Please see our registration site for more information.

Thanks in a large part to our sponsors, we are able to bring the conference to you this year at a lower cost. Full delegate registration for the 2-day event is $400 if you register before the early bird registration deadline of October 20th. Members of synergy groups may qualify for discounted rates, so contact your synergy group coordinator for more information.

Join us for these great topics and more...

  • Public involvement – opportunity to hear about (and contribute to) the regulator’s evolving approach.
  • Liability management and closure – a hot topic this year, we’ll have the latest updates and information.
  • Renewable energy installations – how do negotiation processes and regulatory requirements compare to what we’re used to with oil & gas.
  • The “Blanket Exercise” – back by popular demand!

Scattered through the conference will be “Ten Talks”... ten minute presentations showcasing and highlighting a variety of synergy related projects, milestones and opportunities. And of course, we’ll be ensuring there is plenty of time throughout the conference to network, renew acquaintances, meet new people, and share ideas or stories.

Register now... November 6th & 7th at the Executive Royal Hotel in Leduc. Watch our schedules tab on the registration website for updates to the conference schedule!

Land Owners Guide

The Landowners' Guide to Land Agreements has officially been launched and is available online.

This booklet was created with input from the Land Matters Group’s Subcommittee on Landowner Guidance (Subcommittee). The Subcommittee was officially struck in January 2016 and included landowners, community and industry representatives. They provided direction for this document, as well as recommendations for future resources for landowners.
