Alberta Water Council Board of Directors

The Alberta Water Council is comprised of 24 Members organized into four sector groups - Industry, Non-Government Organizations, Government, and the Government of Alberta and Provincial Authorities. Each Member represents a discrete sector and identifies a director and, if they wish, an alternate to represent their interests on the board of directors. The Members from each sector group select a representative for the executive committee (vice-president), and the members of the executive committee select a president from its ranks.
