A DAY IN THE LIFE OF THE KEG PRESIDENT...
KEG President Colin Russell had a very unique opportunity on Thursday June 5th. Not only did he spend the day golfing with the Minister of Mines, MLA Bill Bennett... he had a one on one breakfast to discuss any issues in the mining industry. Colin was well prepared talking with members, directors and AMEBC to have lots to discuss. Thanks Colin for representing KEG and all its members!!
KEG's success is soley based on the long hours put in by countless volunteers. KEG would like to thank each and every person, including our hard working executive, who have put in so much time on many events including the KEG Lecture Series and the KEG Conference.
