Volunteers Wanted for the PSB's Professional Examination

In 2016, the Professional Standards Board (PSB) changed its Professional Examination from an essay-style exam to a multiple-choice format.  The PSB continues to administer this exam to 150+ candidates per year. In order to maintain the rigour of the Professional Examination, we wish to add some new questions to our questions bank to include in future sittings. We are looking for volunteers who are APPI members in good standing for 7+ years (must be RPP) to provide support for this initiative. The PSB thanks those who responded to our call for volunteers in 2017 and looks forward to working with another group of volunteers over the coming months.
In order to achieve a sustainable question bank for years to come, the PSB and its Professional Education and Examination Committee would like to confirm your interest and advise you of the next steps in the process. We are asking volunteers to confirm their interest in contributing to this initiative by emailing Nzinga Brown at

FireSmart Community Series - Working Towards a Resilient Alberta

October 2 - 4, 2018

MacDonald Island Conference Centre, Fort McMurray, Alberta

Every two years, the Alberta Wildfire Management Branch puts on the FireSmart Community Series. This event brings municipal and Indigenous community leaders, fire departments, mitigation experts and government staff together to network and learn about the innovative approaches to the FireSmart program that are taking place across Alberta.

Over the last two years, Fort McMurray Forest Area staff and our Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo community partners have demonstrated incredible resilience as they navigate their recovery process, from a FireSmart perspective. We are extremely pleased to host the Community Series in Fort McMurray, as it will provide the opportunity to showcase the incredible work that is taking place, across all seven FireSmart disciplines.
