The CCGA proudly welcomes CAEPLA to the CCGA Board of Directors!
Representing the safety interests of transmission pipeline landowners across Canada, CAEPLA's involvement on the CCGA Board will help to ensure there is active landowner engagement on national damage prevention initiatives such as the ongoing development of the CCGA's Best Practices; and, the promotion, use and simplified access to the damage prevention process.
"Up until now", explains Dr. Dave Baspaly, Chair of the CCGA, "the landowner's damage prevention perspective has not been individually represented on the CCGA Board of Directors - and that was a problem. To respond, we specifically made room within our governance to accommodate the landowner demographic on our Board."
Mike Sullivan, CCGA Executive Director, continued, "The Common Ground Alliance is about inclusion. With every like-minded Association we engage, the closer we get to realizing our commonly shared objectives of public, worker and community safety; and, the prevention of damage to Canada's critical buried infrastructure."
The CCGA's next Board of Directors meeting is scheduled October 6th in Montreal and will coincide with the CCGA's 3rd Annual CCGA Damage Prevention Symposium.
