The convention features a unique Student & Early Career program with events geared toward post-secondary students and recent graduates, with a commitment to raise awareness of the many opportunities that the exploration and development industry have to offer.

The Student & Early Career program relies on industry professionals to engage and encourage today's students, the future leaders of our industry.
