Each year at PTAC’s Annual General Meeting we take the opportunity to recognize the outstanding leadership and contributions of the over 200 volunteers who dedicate their time and expertise to PTAC led initiatives. These initiatives help drive forward innovation and collaborative technology development within the Canadian energy industry, and are not possible without the support of our committed industry volunteers. In recognizing the outstanding volunteers of 2017, PTAC presented 21 awards at our Annual General Meeting and Awards Luncheon on May 2, 2018 to those individuals who exemplified outstanding efforts towards collaborative PTAC R&D initiatives.
