Call for Delegate: NRCB Policy Advisory Board

Alternate member, Policy Advisory Board
Application Deadline:

The Alberta Environmental Network has been notified that there is a need to identify an alternate member to the NRCB policy advisory group (PAG). The NRCB delivers the Agricultural Operation Practices Act and provides broad governance, administrative policy, and appeals. The Policy Advisory Group (PAG) is a multi-stakeholder advisory committee that provides advice to the Chief Executive Officer of the Natural Resources Conservation Board (NRCB) on matters related to the effective delivery of the Agricultural Operation Practices Act (AOPA).

Time Commitment: 

The Policy Advisory Group will meet three to four times per year for a day-long meeting alternating between Edmonton and Calgary with the occasional meeting in Lethbridge.

Alternate members are generally expected to attend only when the primary member is unavailable, however there are provisions for 'observers' to attend PAG meetings. Alternates are expected to liase with primary members as necessary.
