Call for Delegate: Clean Air Strategic Alliance Board of Directors

Initiative: 
CASA Board Member
Application Deadline: 
29 May 2008 (All day)
Background: 

The Clean Air Strategic Alliance (CASA) is a multi-stakeholder organization made up of representatives of industry, government, and environmental organizations which develops and recommends strategies to assess and improve air quality in Alberta.

It is governed by a board of directors who are appointed by their sectors in accordance with the principle of sectoral self-selection. There are six ENGO representatives on the CASA board; nominally three board members and three alternates, but alternates have the same participation rights as the primary members.

At the 2005 AEN general meeting, AEN members established a policy of requiring renewal of ENGO board members and alternates on three-year terms.

At the 2007 AEN general meeting, in accordance with this policy, one CASA board member and alternate will stand for re-election to the CASA board. At this time, any other qualified AEN member may also stand for election to the CASA board.

Call for Delegate: Ambient Air Quality Objectives Stakeholder Advisory Committee

Initiative: 
Ambient Air Quality Objectives Stakeholder Advisory Committee
Application Deadline: 
28 Apr 2008 (All day)
Background: 

Alberta Environment has the responsibility (under EPEA 14(1)) to develop ambient air quality objectives as one of the key components of the air quality management system.

The Multi-Stakeholder Group (MSG) for PM and Ozone was established by CASA in 1998 to provide input to Alberta Environment on the development of a CWS for particulate matter and ozone. In its final report, the MSG provided advice on the level, form, and application of the CWS, and recommended a plan of action for pursuing air quality objectives and standards in Alberta. Based on MSG's recommendation, a multi-stakeholder priority-setting workshop is held every 3 – 4 years with assistance from CASA to identify priority substances for Ambient Air Quality Objective review and development. Alberta Environment prepares a work plan after each priority-setting workshop to address the priorities.

The last priority-setting workshop was held in October 2004. This Stakeholder Working Group (or Stakeholder Advisory/Working Committee) has been established to assist the Alberta Environment in implementing the 2005 – 2008 Alberta Ambient Air Quality Objectives Work Plan.

Purpose:

The group will assist AENV in carrying out the 3-year work plan (2005 – 2008).

Tasks:

The working group members will advise AENV on:

  • appropriate steps (approaches) for objective development
  • appropriate air quality objectives
  • ways to communicate to stakeholder groups and the public
