Call for Delegates: Electricity Review Project Team, CASA

Initiative: 
Electricity Five-year Review Project Team
Application Deadline: 
7 Nov 2008 (All day)
Background: 

As you may be aware, 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

Electricity Five-year Review Project Team

The Electricity Five-year Review Project Team is conducting a review of the air emissions management framework for Alberta's electricity producing sector. An ENGO successor to Linda Duncan (recently elected to Parliament) is needed for this project team. Familiarity with (or a strong commitment to understand) the Emissions Management Framework for the Alberta Electricity Sector is required for this position.
