Synergy groups to meet in Red Deer
Representatives of Alberta’s 30 “synergy groups” will gather in Red Deer later this month to learn and collaborate.
Synergy Alberta, a non-profit organization that supports community-based groups with a stake in energy development, will hold its annual general meeting and conference in the city Oct. 28 to 30.
Presentations and panel discussions on a wide range of topics are planned, including Canada’s energy future, water safety and community engagement.
Speakers will include members of industry, academia, government, regulatory agencies and land stewardship groups.
“Once again, we have an amazing group of knowledgeable and insightful speakers, promising new ideas and lively discussion for attendees, as we look at energy development from many different perspectives,” said Iris English, co-chair of Synergy Alberta.
Synergy groups give community members input into energy development decisions. Central Alberta synergy groups include Butte Action Committee, Calumut Synergy Association, Central Mountainview Action Group, Parkland Airshed Management Zone Association, Rimbey Regional Synergy Group and Sundre Petroleum Operators Group.
Cost to attend this year’s conference is $690, or $400 for one day only.
Community members of synergy groups pay $75. Additional information can be obtained online at www.synergyalberta.ca.
