PSAC Stars and Spurs Gala


Presented by

It’s back! On behalf of Steve Glanville, Gala Committee Chair and President and COO of STEP Energy Services, and Gurpreet Lail, President and CEO of PSAC, we are thrilled to announce that the iconic PSAC STARS & Spurs Gala returns on April 30, 2022, for an in-person event.

For 28 years, the PSAC’s STARS & Spurs Gala has brought us together in celebration of our industry’s resilience and hard work. We are in challenging and transformational times, and are proud of our industry’s ability to adapt. Together, we can reach incredible new heights and build a sustainable and safe future for our tomorrow. It is for that reason, we are happy to announce this year’s theme – Progress is in the Air.

As we continue to rise to new challenges, let’s celebrate our successes and come together for a much-overdue in-person event. In support of STARS, and in the name of safety, let’s make this year our best one yet.

Thank you to all of our sponsors, and to those who have attended and supported this event in previous years. We can’t wait to see you at this year’s gala.
