Message from the Chairs of CEEA 71
Steve and Jenn Major
We are thrilled and privileged to be chairing the 71st Canadian Energy Executive Association, formerly known as the "Oilmen's". As our not for profit organization now enters its 8th decade, we are proud of our history of networking, advocacy for the Canadian Energy Industry, and giving back to our community.
The relationships we have built are great for business, but also socially – life-long friendships are formed at CEEA between members and their partners. Our signature events continue to be our Spring Charity Gala (April 9th, 2022 at the Downtown Calgary Westin Hotel) and our Energy Business Forum and Oilmen's Golf Tournament (August 24 – 27, 2022 at the Fairmont Banff Springs) for serious golfers chasing a coveted Red Jacket or "Rec Golfers" just looking for some fun. However this year also marks our inaugural Winter Wonderland Weekend (February 25-26, 2022 at the Kananaskis Pomeroy Lodge) – come ski, snow shoe, dog sled, and/or Nordic spa with us.
Our advocacy efforts have helped move the needle in helping to inform and educate our fellow Canadians that Canadian Energy is the best in the world on Environmental, Social, and Governance metrics, that using Canadian supply and encouraging Clean Technology is the best way to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions, and that meaningful Indigenous participation is the best way to help our Indigenous communities escape poverty and enjoy the same standard of living as other Canadians enjoy. This year marks our first year of National Engagement, where we look to take our positive message "on the road" to Central and Eastern Canada.
Finally, we have surpassed over half a million dollars in community giving from our membership and are proud to help the communities around us where we live and play. We give back because the Industry has been good to us, and it is the right thing to do to help others in need.
CEEA '71 is all about the renaissance of our Canadian Energy Industry – we are optimistic about its vibrancy and positive contribution to the economy and environment, which are not mutually exclusive.
Our CEEA'71 theme is Mission:Possible. Join our adventure! With your help, WE CAN DO IT!
