Calls for Delegates

Provincial Consultations

AEN co-ordinates ENGO participation in Alberta Government and other multi-stakeholder consultations, working groups, and conferences. Past calls for delegates are listed below.


Call for Delegates: Performance Measures Sub-committee, CASA

Initiative: 
Performance Measures Sub-committee
Application Deadline: 
7 Nov 2008 (All day)
Background: 

CASA is Alberta's most prominent collaborative forum for the successful development of multi-stakeholder environmental policy recommendations. This success is built on the strong participation of environmental groups in CASA, and the inclusion of important structural features such as balanced representation, stakeholder support, Alberta Environment's commitment to champion consensus recommendations, and sectoral representation and self-selection.

Recent events have led to ENGO vacancies on CASA committees and project teams:

  • CASA Communications Committee
  • CASA Performance Measures Sub-committee
  • Ambient Air Quality Objectives Priority Setting Workshop Organizing Committee
  • Airshed Membership Review Committee
  • Electricity Five-year Review Project Team

Communications and Performance Measures

CASA Communications Committee and Performance Measures Sub-committee each offer an entry-level introduction to CASA while performing an important operation function for the organization and requiring easily transferable skills. AEN members with experience in public awareness/marketing, and performance indicators are encouraged to apply to serve on these CASA committees.

Call for Delegates: AWC Sector Plan Monitoring Working Group

Initiative: 
ENGO Sector Participant
Application Deadline: 
6 Oct 2008 (All day)
Background: 

The AEN has received a request from the Alberta Water Council to identify an ENGO sector participant for the new multi-stakeholder AWC Sector Plan Monitoring Working Group. This working group will support the sectors preparing and implementing Conservation, Efficiency and Productivity (CEP) plans during the first three years of implementing the Alberta Water Council CEP recommendations.

Deadline to indicate interest is morning of October 6. The first meeting will be the week of October 22.

As a key action of Water for Life, the “Water Conservation, Efficiency and Productivity Sector Planning Final Report” (please see the attached document) was given final approval at the September 16th Alberta Water Council (AWC) board meeting. Recommendation 23 in this report asks the AWC to establish a new project team that will receive CEP sector plans, provide advice to participating sectors, and review the effectiveness of the CEP sector planning system, overall.

Recommendation 23 indicates that the following sectors should participate on this team:

  • Seven priority sectors
  • Alberta Environment
  • Other stakeholders

To effectively support the sectors preparing and implementing CEP plans during the first three years, the AWC is moving quickly to develop and approve a project team Terms of Reference (ToR) so that this team can begin its work in supporting the participating sectors. AWC is optimistically shooting for a working group to come forward with a draft ToR at the December 2008 Council meeting.

Development of the plan has been underway since January 2008 and the plan is expected to be released in January 2009.

Work has commenced on the first draft of the plan and input from a Team of Experts, the AUMA Sustainability and Environment Standing Committee and a Multi-Stakeholder Group will lead to the development of a final draft in November. At that time, there will be a water workshop to share the key points of the plan with AUMA members and to establish targets for water conservation and efficiency in Alberta municipalities.
