In addition to a Board of Directors, the Red Deer River Watershed Alliance has two Standing Committees and invites members in good standing to become actively involved in committee activities. Committee appointments are made by the Board of Directors. A brief description of the committees follows:
(Chairperson: Dale Christian)
The Outreach Committee works to inform, educate and engage all persons having an interest in Red Deer River watershed management; it also provides advice to the Red Deer River Watershed Alliance on aspects of education and stewardship outreach. The committee seeks to inform, engage, and raise the awareness of, members, stakeholders, media and the public on Red Deer River watershed issues and stewardship options.
The Outreach Committee liaises with Watershed Stewardship Groups within the Red Deer River Watershed in support of their local watershed management efforts. In addition to supporting existing Watershed Stewardship Groups, the committee ensures that tools and processes are available to interested individuals in forming new Watershed Stewardship Groups.
Fundraising & Membership Committee
The Fundraising & Membership Committee works to sustain adequate funding for the Alliance's varied projects and programs. The committee works at expanding funding sources by seeking opportunities for funding partnerships throughout the watershed, encouraging representation of all interested stakeholders and multi-sectoral interests.
It also works to maintain and expand Red Deer River Watershed Alliance membership, by engaging all persons having an interest in Red Deer River watershed management. The committee educates Red Deer River Watershed Alliance members of their rights and responsibilities.
