CPC3 Conference Featured Speakers
Check out some of our featured speakers that will be attending our 2021 virtual conference!
The 2021 Joint Virtual Conference will be held on December 1st and 2nd through a virtual collaboration between Alberta Society of Professional Biologists, the Association of the Chemical Profession of Alberta, and the Association of Alberta Forest Management Professionals 

Conferences like the CPC3 aid in professional development and networking; key aspects for developing a professional career. That's why free student registration is available for future professionals to help develop your professional network and start you on the road to professional development.

ACPA, ASPB, and AAFMP will sponsor a limited number of students wishing to attend the annual CPC3 Conference.

Recommendations of apps for making videos can be found here.
Any regulated or non-regulated registrants of AAFMP, ACPA, or ASPB are eligible to enter the 2021 Virtual Conference Video Contest. Videos submitted will be posted at the 2020 Virtual Conference on a media wall for all registrants to view. Submissions from both individuals and teams are accepted.

We will announce the top category winners at the conference. Winners will be chosen based on the number of views of the videos. The winners of each category will receive an Amazon gift card valued at $500! (One award per group submission.)

The video contest deadline is October 29, 2021. Submissions received after this time will not be considered.
